Wie wird Nanotechnologie die Zukunft veraendern? Welche neuen Anwendungen zeichnen sich ab? Wo wird Nano als Studiengang angeboten? Antworten auf Fragen dieser Art gibt 'nanotechnologie aktuell' in seiner Ausgabe 2010.
Biomolecules such as peptides and nucleic acids can nowadays be synthesised relatively quickly and inexpensively. In addition, great progress has been made in the development of methods enabling the directed mutagenesis in microorganisms. These two developments have boosted the design of new, and the reorganisation of known, molecules.
The event comprising of Exhibition and Conference will encompass two full days of presentations and discussions and interactive networking activities; a meeting place for the global Scientists, Industry, Academia and Government with a focus on 'Frontiers of Nanotechnology: Impact on India'.
Though a valuable weapon against cancerous tumors, radiation therapy often harms healthy tissue as it tries to kill malignant cells. Now, Prof. Israel Gannot of Tel Aviv University's Department of Biomedical Engineering is developing a new way to destroy tumors with fewer side effects and minimal damage to surrounding tissue.
A new test for oral cancer, which a dentist could perform by simply using a brush to collect cells from a patient's mouth, is set to be developed by researchers at the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University's Molecular Biosensor and Imaging Center (MBIC) are turning up the brightness on a group of fluorescent probes called fluoromodules that are used to monitor biological activities of individual proteins in real-time.
From August 7 to September 26, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) will present the exhibition 'Wunderkammer Wissenschaft' (Cabinet of scientific curiosities) of the Helmholtz Association Center for Arts and Media Technology.
Scientists have been able to successfully demonstrate on mice that magnetic relaxometry is suited to be applied together with the heat treatment. It furnishes information about the whereabouts of the nanoparticles in the body - completely without contact to the patient.
The research grant is based on Professor Jonathan Coleman's work with graphene and his team's novel method of being able to split graphite down into individual layers of graphene, which could be used to make stronger and lighter materials.
