A new biomedical tool using nanoparticles that deliver transient gene changes to targeted cells could make therapies for a variety of diseases - including cancer, diabetes and HIV - faster and cheaper to develop, and more customizable.
Scientists were able to successfully manipulate the electronic structure of graphene, which may enable the fabrication of graphene transistors - faster and more reliable than existing silicon-based transistors.
Researchers have patented a one-of-a-kind process for exfoliating graphene in its pure (unoxidized) form, as well as manufacturing innovative graphene nanocomposites that have potential uses in a variety of applications.
Scientists designed a way to use microscopic capsules made out of DNA to deliver a payload of tiny molecules directly into a cell. The technique gives researchers an opportunity to understand certain interactions among cells that have previously been hard to track.
Separation membranes hold the key to making hydrogen fuel cheaper; researchers show that liquid-metal membranes appear to be lower in cost, more durable, and better at separating hydrogen than conventional membranes.
