Northwestern University scientists now offer a promising new weapon - synthetic high-density lipoprotein (HDL), the ?'good' cholesterol - that could help fight chronically high cholesterol levels and the deadly heart disease that often results.
An international team of scientists, among them researchers from the department of Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics of the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM), present a new method to manipulate atoms.
Under the three-year renewable agreement, Baxter will fund research-collaboration projects at Northwestern. Funding levels for each year may reach approximately $1 million, and Baxter will determine specific project funding levels on a case-by-case basis.
Scientists at U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory used inelastic neutron scattering to show that superconductivity in a new family of iron arsenide superconductors cannot be explained by conventional theories.
Scientists at DuPont and Cornell University have used a simple chemical process to convert 'as grown' mixtures of metallic and semiconducting carbon nanotubes into solely semiconducting carbon nanotubes with electrical characteristics well-suited for plastic electronics.
Researchers have discovered a way to synthesize and control the formation of nanobristles, akin to tiny hairs, into helical clusters and have further demonstrated the fabrication of such highly ordered clusters, built from similar coiled building blocks, over multiple scales and areas.
A powerful computing tool that allows scientists to extract features and patterns from enormously large and complex sets of raw data has been developed by scientists at University of California, Davis, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
Researchers in Japan have developed a technology for visualizing structures defects/damages and their danger levels, which cannot be seen directly from outside, by using luminous intensity distribution of elastico-luminescent materials.
The Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN), one of the UK's primary knowledge-based networks for Micro and Nanotechnologies, has announced its support for the 1.8bn Euros that has been made available by the European Commission, through their Information Communications Technology (ICT) fund.
NanoBioNexus, the leading nanobiotechnology non-profit industry organization, announced today that the organization is strategically expanding its scope beyond the life sciences resulting in a formal corporate name change to NanoTecNexus (NTN).
At the 2nd Annual Conference on Nanotechnology Law, Regulation and Policy, February 18-199, 2009 in Washington, D.C., food and drug industry representatives will find out what's happening internationally on nanotech regulation, how venture capitalists look at the future of nanotechnology and what the leading corporations, scientific laboratories and academic centers are focusing on in this dynamic field.
