The two winners of Nanochallenge and Polymerchallenge 2009 have been announced. After two days of presentation the international jury made a decision choosing the two winners among the eight finalist teams.
Professor Samuel Stupp, Director of Northwestern's Institute for BioNanotechnology and a great visionary within biomaterials research, visits Goteborg on December 8 to sign a new cooperation agreement with Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg.
The University of Pittsburgh's McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine, which connects scientists who work on tissue engineering, cell therapies, artificial organs and biodevices, has been awarded a Shared University Research (SUR) Award from IBM.
The Institute for NanoBioTechnology at Johns Hopkins University offers undergraduate students from colleges and universities around the country a chance to participate in research projects in the exciting and rapidly growing area of nanobiotechnology, a place where biology, medicine, and nanotechnology meet.
On December 8, in Baltimore, Maryland, Applied Materials will host an important symposium exploring critical questions surrounding the industry's capability to deliver the density and performance required to satisfy the ever-growing demand for higher capacity flash memory chips.
New research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has allowed scientists to observe ion channels within the surface membrane for the first time, potentially offering insights for future drug development.
Researchers from NIST and the Naval Research Laboratory have developed a new way to introduce magnetic impurities in a semiconductor crystal, a technique that will enable researchers to selectively implant atoms in a crystal one at a time to learn about its electrical and magnetic properties on the atomic scale.
Im letzten Jahr haben das Fraunhofer IAO und das Fraunhofer-Institut fuer Angewandte Polymerforschung IAP, Potsdam-Golm, eine Technologieplattform fuer Mikroverkapselung ins Leben gerufen, von der Industrien unterschiedlicher Branchen, von der Papier- ueber die Chemieindustrie bis hin zur Personal Care-Industrie bereits enorm profitiert haben.
