A recent review provides an overview of interactions of nonbiodegradable, persistent nanoparticles with the immune system. Particular emphases include key factors that shape such interactions, cell-specific responses, allergy and immune-sensitive respiratory disorders.
In deutlich weniger Zeit und mit deutlich geringerem Aufwand als bisher gelingen mit einer in der Gruppe des Jenaer Mikroskopie-Experten Prof. Dr. Rainer Heintzmann entwickelten Auswertungssoftware Bilder aus lebenden Zellen.
The National Center for Nanotechnology (NANOTEC) has decided to use the upcoming nanotech 2012 in Tokyo, Japan as a platform to share, exchange knowledge, and seek business partnership in natural disaster mitigation under the theme "Thailand: Nanotechnology for Natural Disaster Mitigation" from February 15-17 in Tokyo Big Sight.
Researchers have demonstrated a new imaging tool for tracking structures called carbon nanotubes in living cells and the bloodstream, which could aid efforts to perfect their use in biomedical research and clinical medicine.
The year's highest science honor for high school students was awarded today to biochemistry research on cancer stem cells and an innovative use of gaming technology in the area of leg injuries and prosthetics in the 2011 Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology, America's premier science research competition for high school students.
With a record number of 17 papers at the IEEE International Electron Device Meeting (IEDM) in Washington (December 5th-7th 2011), imec confirms its leading global position as R+D center solving key challenges of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) and as technology and process provider for heterogeneous system integration.
Wang received a 2011 Materials Research Society Medal Nov. 30th at the organization's fall meeting in Boston. The medal's commendation notes his "seminal contributions in the discovery, controlled synthesis, and fundamental understanding of zinc oxide nanowires and nanobelts, and the design and fabrication of novel, nanowire-based nanosensors, piezotronic devices and nanogenerators for energy harvesting."
