The purpose of this subcontract is to identify and evaluate the clinical potential of candidate targeted nanotherapeutics which has shown promise in small animal models for subsequent efficacy and toxicity testing in large animal models. It is expected that data gathered under this subcontract will enable filing of Investigational New Drug (IND) applications with the US-FDA.
The International Food Information Council (IFIC) 2010 'Consumer Perceptions of Food Technology' survey found that consumers support the use of food biotechnology when they consider its potential benefits for reducing the impact of food and food production on the environment, and for improving sustainability.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany announced today that 22 exceptional undergraduate students have been selected to participate in its prestigious Summer Internship Program.
Internationally renowned chemical biologist Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi, whose research is applied worldwide in the biopharmaceutical industry, has achieved extraordinary success for her pioneering inventions in the field of biotechnology.
Combination of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Raman / Fluorescence / Rayleigh microscopy and Scanning Near-Field Optical Microscopy (SNOM) provides unique opportunities for Graphene investigation. Different AFM techniques allow one to study mechanical, electrical, magnetic and even elastic properties of Graphene flakes.
ion-mask, P2i's world-leading liquid repellent nano-coating for footwear and lifestyle products, has taken the web by storm after featuring in 'Liquid Mountaineering' - a video viral that has generated more than four million hits on YouTube.
Wissenschaftler aus Hannover und Jena haben eine neue Methode entwickelt, die einen Siliziumkristall zum perfekten Spiegel macht: Sie haben in seine Oberflaeche ein speziell strukturiertes Nano-Gitter geaetzt.
Experts from key EU projects united in Brussels at Nanomedicine in Europe today to deliver a strong message to the European Parliament that concerted and coordinated action is needed to ensure the widespread benefits offered by advances in nanomedicine are not squandered.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have found that applying a small electric field results in faster formation of ceramic products during manufacture at lower temperatures, and enhances the strength of the ceramic itself.
A team of Duke University chemists has perfected a simple way to make tiny copper nanowires in quantity. The cheap conductors are small enough to be transparent, making them ideal for thin-film solar cells, flat-screen TVs and computers, and flexible displays.
