Through online activities ranging from facilitated chats to one-on-one interviews, the members will help Elsevier identify, design and deliver relevant products and services that resonate with and inspire research scientists around the world.
Elsevier announced today, that Biomaterials, the leading journal in the field of biomaterials science, will host Biomaterials Asia 2009 in Hong Kong from April 5-8 to highlight the latest Asian research developments, institutions, and individuals in biomaterials science.
From Puerto Rico to Montana, museums, universities and research centers are gearing up for one of the largest outreach efforts ever attempted for educating the public about science and engineering at the nanoscale, a barely conceivable environment where one can manipulate objects as small as a single atom.
Nanotechnology International Prize is a unique international award. For the first time the prize will be awarded not only for nanotechnology scientific discoveries and innovations but for their application to mass production.
Funding from the Missouri Life Sciences Research Fund, part of the 1998 state tobacco settlement, will establish the St. Louis Institute of Nanomedicine Working Group, a collaborative regional effort to apply advances in nanotechnology to the treatment of human diseases.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have developed a method for coating metal surfaces with an ultrathin film containing nanoparticles which renders the metal resistant to corrosion and eliminates the use of toxic chromium for this purpose.
Flexible display screens and cheap solar cells can become a reality through research and development in organic electronics. Physicists at Umea University in Sweden have now developed a new and simple method for producing cheap electronic components.
A new book from the National Research Council finds serious weaknesses in the government's plan for research on the potential health and environmental risks posed by nanomaterials, which are increasingly being used in consumer goods and industry.
The safety of early applications of synthetic biology may be adequately addressed by the existing regulatory framework for biotechnology, especially in contained laboratories and manufacturing facilities. But further advances in this emerging field are likely to create significant challenges for U.S. government oversight.
