A team of scientists at Arkansas Nanotechnology Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock has developed what promises to be a non-invasive method of eradicating cancer cells while reducing the life-threatening side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
Researchers have developed a novel optical fiber that enables transmission of ultrashort light pulses with an unprecedented low degree of distortions. The researchers transmitted light pulses of 13 fs duration over one meter distance, with the pulses only stretching to about double of the initial duration.
A novel computational biology method developed by a research team led by Ali Abdi, PhD, associate professor in NJIT's department of electrical and computer engineering, has found a way to uncover the critical genes responsible for disease development.
The Institute for NanoBioTechnology (INBT) at Johns Hopkins University strives to be integrative and multidisciplinary. With 170 faculty and more than two dozen graduate students and undergraduates with backgrounds as diverse as physics and computational medicine, the institute has sought to broaden skills and foster collaborations among its student body and its faculty members.
Quantum dots have been studied in lasers, solar paneling, and biomedical therapeutics. Nina Markovic, affiliated faculty member of the Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology and assistant professor of physics in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, believes this emerging technology will prove important in cancer therapies, energy transmission, and drug delivery.
The U.S. Department of Energy's Technology Transfer Coordinator, Under Secretary for Science Dr. Raymond L. Orbach, announced today two new model agreements that will expand access to DOE's world-class research facilities by academia and industry.
Aphios Corporation today announced receipt of a Phase I Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse to develop an improved oral formulation for marijuana addiction and unmet medical needs.
A group of researchers led by Adrian Bachtold of the CIN2 laboratory in Spain has developed an ultrasensitive mass sensor, which can measure tiny amounts of mass with atomic precision, and with an unprecedented resolution to date.
Harnessing the process of biomineralization may be closer to reality as an international team of scientists has detailed a key and previously hidden mechanism to transform amorphous calcium carbonate into calcite, the stuff of seashells.
A new nanoparticle-enabled imaging method for breast cancer, utilizing encapsulated fluorescent molecules in calcium phosphate nanoparticles and nontoxic near infrared imaging, has been developed by a team of scientists from Penn State.
Nanoparticles filled with small interfering RNA (siRNA) molecules targeting two genes that trigger melanoma have shown that they can inhibit the development of melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer.
A team of investigators at Northwestern University has developed a promising nanomaterial-based biomedical device that could be used to deliver chemotherapy drugs locally to sites where cancerous tumors have been surgically removed.
