A method for guiding replacement cells to diseased vascular segments using nanoparticles. The scientists demonstrated in mice that the fresh cells actually exert their curative effect in these segments.
Researchers have now used 3D print technology to create a new type of transparent electrode, which takes the form of a grid made of gold or silver 'nanowalls' on a glass surface. The walls are so thin that they can hardly be seen with the naked eye.
Researchers have developed a new material composite derived from quantum dots. These lipoprotein nanoplatelets are rapidly taken up by cells and retain their fluorescence, making them particularly well-suited for imaging cells and understanding disease mechanisms.
Scientists have successfully developed the world's smallest nanomagnet, a single-digit nanosize hard ferrite magnet composed of iron oxide. Being composed of iron and oxygen, the magnet is eco-friendly, low cost, and suitable for mass production.
Researchers are using M. thermoacetica to perform photosynthesis - despite being non-photosynthetic - and also to synthesize semiconductor nanoparticles in a hybrid artificial photosynthesis system for converting sunlight into valuable chemical products.
