The lab's mission is to contribute to the understanding of Nano-Bio Interfaces, using multi-disciplinary approaches, for safe use of magnetic nanoparticles (e.g. superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles - SPIONs) as theranosis agents. In addition, the lab is seeking to set nano-safety standards.
Tel Aviv University has launched the first interdisciplinary university research institute for nanoscience and nanotechnology in Israel, with a multimillion investment. Over 40 groups actively conduct leading research in electronics, physics, chemistry, biotech and medicine, developing more than 85 specific and interdisciplinary projects.
The main focus of TiiMS is to develop and advance the nano and biotechnologies that enable our vision of adaptive, intelligent, shape-controllable micro and macro structures, for advanced aircraft and space systems.
MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms is an ambitious interdisciplinary initiative that is looking beyond the end of the Digital Revolution to ask how a functional description of a system can be embodied in, and abstracted from, a physical form.
The group is studying manufacture of the new device adapting the position sensor (encoder) and silicone micro machining technology which considered the application to a robot etc., development of the optical parts used by fiber-optic communications, and nanotechnology.
The Samukawa Lab conducts research on ways to generate charged particles (positive and negative ions, electrons) and neutral particles (atoms/molecules) and associated acceleration technologies (including beam technologies), as well as research on particle flow and the latest bio-nano processes.
This laboratory is focuses on the dynamics and kinetics of interacting biomolecules, the mechanics of protein imported to mitochondria membranes, the kinetics of molecular motors under external strain and the nanomechanical action at ribosomal complexes during translation.
This is a four-year degree programme, run jointly by the Schools of Chemistry and Physics at Trinity College Dublin. Students will gain a deep and lasting understanding of the science of advanced materials that underpins the nano revolution. Some laboratory training is provided in CRANN, the leading institute for nanoscience in Ireland.
