Nanochallenge and Polymerchallenge is the unique international business plan competition, completely focused on nanotechnology and polymer-based materials. It awards one of the largest worldwide prizes for the creation of new high tech enterprises.
Chances of survival of prostate cancer depend strongly on the stage at which the disease is diagnosed. Now scientists have developed new methods relying on an electronic nose and optoacoustics to improve the diagnosis techniques and avoid fatal treatment delays.
Mildred S. Dresselhaus is recognized with the Kavli Prize for Nanoscience for her seminal contributions to the science of carbon-based nanostructures and for her elucidation of the electron-phonon interaction on the nanoscale.
For more than three decades scientists have been investigating magnetic nanoparticles as a method of drug delivery. Now by combining three metals - iron, gold and platinum - pharmacists at the University of Sydney believe they have discovered a method for magnetically directing drugs through the body.
The 4th and final ObservatoryNANO Report on Regulation and Standard for Nanotechnologies is now available online. It provides a concise overview of initiatives in more than 20 countries, worldwide, with reference to hard regulation, voluntary measures, standards and international cooperation in the field.
Scientists at the University of Glasgow have created an unusual tribute to Her Majesty the Queen to mark her Diamond Jubilee - the world's smallest commemorative coin, made from a tiny sliver of diamond.
Researchers at National Nanotechnology Center (NANOTEC) and King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi have successfully developed a target drug delivery system using folate-conjugated pluronic F127/chitosan core-shell nanoparticles to deliver doxorubicin (DOX) to target cancer cells focusing on breast cancer.
Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a plaster that accelerates wound healing and is easily removed from the wound at any time. Burn victims in particular may profit from this invention in the future.
