After powering the micro-electronics revolution, silicon could carve out an important new role in speeding the debut of ultra-clean fuel cell vehicles powered by hydrogen, researchers in China suggest.
The NanoBusiness Alliance today announced that its Executive Director, Sean Murdock, testified before the House Science Committee earlier today in support of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Amendments Act of 2008.
A new method that uses nanotechnology to rapidly measure minute amounts of insulin is a major step toward developing the ability to assess the health of the body?s insulin-producing cells in real time.
New research demonstrates that novel probe technology based on flexible membranes can replace conventional atomic force microscopy (AFM) cantilevers for applications such as fast topographic imaging, quantitative material characterization and single molecule mechanics measurements.
Early diagnosis of a heart attack may now be possible using only a few drops of saliva and a new nano-bio-chip, a multi-institutional team led by researchers at The University of Texas at Austin reported.
The grant, which was awarded by the National Institutes of Health, will be used to explore the dangers these man-made microscopic materials pose to human health, especially to the workers who manufacture them.
At the 2008 Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, April 12-16, researchers report that therapies delivered by 'trojan horse' peptides and through the use of nanotechnology may enhance the effectiveness of cancer treatment.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology, in collaboration with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), has published detailed guidelines for making essential measurements on samples of single-walled carbon nanotubes.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have demonstrated a new device that creates nanodroplet 'test tubes' for studying individual proteins under conditions that mimic the crowded confines of a living cell.
College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering Assistant Professor of Nanobioscience Nathaniel Cady is among 20 faculty members from State University of New York campuses around the state to be honored for exceptional research.
