Using large-scale computer simulations, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have identified the most important factors affecting how molecules move through the crowded environment inside living cells. The findings suggest that perturbations caused by hydrodynamic interactions - similar to what happens when the wake from a large boat affects smaller boats on a lake - may be the most important factor in this intracellular diffusion.
Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), the world's leading university-research consortium for semiconductors and related technologies, joined today with the National Science Foundation (NSF) to fund $2 million in supplemental grants for nanoelectronics research.
Elsevier, publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce that as of January 2011 Elsevier will publish The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics (JMD) in partnership with the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) and the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP).
Assistant Prof. Patrick C. H. Hsieh of Institute of Nanotechnology and Microsystems Engineering, College of Medicine, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan, has led a research team of myocardial regeneration to conduct an experiment on pigs and has proved that by combining self-assembling peptide nanofiber hydrogel with autologous bone marrow stem cell, myocardial protection after acute myocardial infarction, vascular regeneration and heart functions can be improved.
A*STAR's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) showcases R+D in polymer and nanocomposites that are used to produce new transparent high-barrier film packaging, low dental shrinkage materials, anti-scratch coatings, aerospace carbon-fibre reinforced polymers and soft, high-impact resistant protective padding.
Contour Energy Systems, Inc. an innovative portable power company commercializing next-generation battery systems, today announced the acquisition of a breakthrough carbon nanotube technology that can dramatically improve the power capability of lithium-ion batteries, through an exclusive technology licensing agreement with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
What do a smart window company, a microbial analysis start-up and waste-heat recovery start-up have in common? They're all located in the San Francisco Bay Area and they're all based on technology developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Sandia researchers use molecular dynamics simulations at the New Mexico Computational Center supercomputer to show that simple coatings are actually incapable of fully covering each spherical nanoparticle in a set.
