Researchers who are developing new types of nanotechnology to deliver cancer drugs have found a promising target - a protein called P-selectin that can aid in the formation of metastases. The researchers synthesized nanoparticles filled with cancer drugs to target them directly to metastatic sites.
A team of researchers has figured out how gold can be used in crystals grown by light to create nanoparticles, a discovery that has major implications for industry and cancer treatment and could improve the function of pharmaceuticals, medical equipment and solar panels.
Researchers have produced a tunable, graphene-based device that could significantly increase the speed and efficiency of wireless communication systems. Their system works at very high frequencies, delivering unprecedented results.
An international team of researchers has demonstrated a new way to increase the robustness and energy storage capability of a particular class of lithium-rich cathode materials - by using a carbon dioxide-based gas mixture to create oxygen vacancies at the material's surface.
