A group of researchers led by scientists from the London Centre for Nanotechnology, in collaboration with a University of Queensland researcher, have discovered a way of using tiny nano-probes to help understand how an antibiotic is effective against bacteria.
Part of a team of more than two dozen attorneys involved in nanotechnology issues note in an article that while there has not been a single lawsuit filed where someone claimed injury because they were exposed to engineered nanomaterials, many scientists are raising questions regarding the manufacturing of nanomaterials and its effects on workforces, researchers and consumers.
Scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) are partnering with industry to develop a sensor system for biomolecules that could make a significant contribution to a variety of fields such as healthcare, veterinary diagnostics, food safety, environmental testing, and national security.
The book provides an introduction to magnetic nanomaterials before systematically discussing the individual materials, their physical and chemical principles, fabrication techniques and biomedical applications.
The shapes of some of the tiniest cellular structures are coming into sharper focus at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute?s Janelia Farm Research Campus, where scientists have developed a new imaging technology that produces the best three-dimensional resolution ever seen with an optical microscope.
UCLA scientists have tested a non-invasive approach that may one day allow physicians to evaluate a tumor's response to a drug before prescribing therapy, enabling them to quickly pinpoint the most effective treatment and personalize it to a patient's unique biochemistry.
The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics has published a new book, Frontiers of Propulsion Science, that compiles for the first time the emerging science of such novel propulsion concepts as space drives, warp drives, gravity control, and faster-than-light travel - breakthroughs that would revolutionize spaceflight and enable human voyages to other star systems.
The ICPCNanoNet project brings together partners from the EU, China, India and Russia and aims to provide wider access to published nanoscience and nanotechnology research and opportunities for collaboration between scientists in the EU and International Cooperation Partner Countries
