IPOS, is a major new Institute, building on a substantial track record and critical mass of research excellence. The formal launch will be followed by a Symposium with internationally renowned speakers to present the current and future role of photonics.
Biomedical engineers have developed a new type of probe that allows them to visualize single ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules within live cells more easily than existing methods. The tool will help scientists learn more about how RNA operates within living cells.
In a breakthrough for applied physics, North Carolina State University researchers have developed a magnetic semiconductor memory device, using GaMnN thin films, which utilizes both the charge and spin of electrons at room temperature.
The London Centre for Nanotechnology will develop a new device to enable people living with HIV to monitor their own health and the effectiveness of their treatments, thanks to a GBP2 million grant announced today.
Weizmann Institute scientists have devised a unique new mechanism for the formation of hydrogen and oxygen from water, without the need for sacrificial chemical agents, through individual steps, using light.
The journal Science, published by the nonprofit American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), today announced plans to launch a new journal devoted to research in translational medicine, which uses insights from basic biology to improve medical care. The journal, Science Translational Medicine, will launch in fall, 2009.
Singapore's Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) has developed the first tri-continuous mesoporous material using a unique surfactant template. This completely new porous structure previously been predicted only mathematically.
Using a 'fuzzy logic' approach, a team of MIT biological engineers has created a new model that reveals different and novel information about these inner cell workings than traditional computational models.
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University has recently received research funding totaling more than $9 million from the Research Grants Council, the Innovation and Technology Fund and industry partners to advance the study of nanostructured materials on both theoretical and technological application sides.
