BioInterfaces represents an ambitious new 'Key Technologies' research program supported by the Helmholtz Association, the largest German scientific funding organization. With an annual budget of approximately 20 Million Euro, the program brings together 67 research team of biologists, chemists, physicists, materials scientists and informaticians.
International experts in cancer research and proteomics are gathering in Dublin this week to discuss how the convergence of these research areas can improve the process of identifying new cancer biomarkers.
The FramingNano Project Consortium has published the third newsletter which summarises outcomes from the Delphi consultation exercise and the recent FramingNano stakeholder workshop which took place on February 26, 2009 in Brussels.
Leti, a leading global research center committed to creating and commercializing innovation in micro- and nanotechnologies, is hosting a workshop on innovative memory technologies at MINATEC on Wednesday, June 24.
Guarding access to the nuclear chamber is the job of large, intimidating gatekeepers known as nuclear pore complexes (NPCs), which stud the nuclear membrane, filtering all of the biochemical information passing in or out. In new research, scientists have for the first time glimpsed in three dimensions an entire subcomplex of the NPC.
A team of physicists and engineers at Bristol University has demonstrated exquisite control of single particles of light - photons - on a silicon chip to make a major advance towards long-sought-after quantum technologies, including super-powerful quantum computers and ultra-precise measurements.
Millions of people today carry around pocket-sized music players capable of holding thousands of songs, thanks to the discovery 20 years ago of a phenomenon known as the 'giant magnetoresistance effect,' which made it possible to pack more data onto smaller and smaller hard drives. Now scientists are on the trail of another phenomenon, called the 'colossal magnetoresistance effect' which is up to a thousand times more powerful and could trigger another revolution in computing technology.
