Teaming up to expand healthcare applications for silicon nanotechnology

Researchers and physicians at Johns Hopkins University will collaborate with the nanoelectronics research center imec to advance silicon applications in healthcare, beginning with development of a device to enable a broad range of clinical tests. The corresponding tests will be performed outside the laboratory. The collaboration, announced today, will combine the Johns Hopkins clinical and research expertise with imec's nanoelectronics capabilities.

Nanopore opens new cellular doorway for drug transport

A living cell is built with barriers to keep things out - and researchers are constantly trying to find ways to smuggle molecules in. Professor Giovanni Maglia and his team have engineered a biological nanopore that acts as a selective revolving door through a cell's lipid membrane. The nanopore could potentially be used in gene therapy and targeted drug delivery.
