A workshop scheduled to take place in Iacocca Hall on Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 13 and 14, will explore how nanotechnology can help the drive to develop alternative sources of energy while improving the efficiency of existing methods of energy generation.
SPADnet - 'Fully Networked, Digital Components for Photon-starved Biomedical Imaging Systems' - is a new collaborative research project funded by the European Union within the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Theme of its Seventh Research Framework Programme (FP7).
It's alway good to listen to both sides of an argument. In that respect, a blog entry on the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF)'s website is quite interesting. Titled 'State-level nano regulation: Yes, indeed, the industry 'should have seen it coming' - it caused it!', Richard Denison gives his take on the role of state and federal regulations relating to nanomaterials.
Scientists succeeded in mapping the inner life of an intact human cell three-dimensionally via cryo-electron tomography. In this way they were able to show where the ribosomes are located in the cell and how they are arranged.
In der Zukunft koennten wenige Millionstel Millimeter grosse Nanofaehren Wirkstoffe oder auch Gene in Zellen schleusen. Derartige Therapien haetten den Vorteil, dass der Wirkstoff keine Nebenwirkungen auf dem Weg durch den Organismus ausloesen kann. Der therapeutische Effekt entfaltet sich erst am Ziel, sodass etwa auch toxische Krebsmedikamente in der Chemotherapie relativ niedrig dosiert werden koennen.
