Nanomedicine: DNA clamp to grab cancer before it develops

Researchers have developed a DNA clamp that can detect mutations at the DNA level with greater efficiency than methods currently in use. Their work could facilitate rapid screening of those diseases that have a genetic basis, such as cancer, and provide new tools for more advanced nanotechnology.

Survey reveals regulatory agencies viewed as unprepared for nanotechnology

In a survey of nano-scientists and engineers, nano-environmental health and safety scientists, and regulators, researchers at the UCSB Center for Nanotechnology in Society and at the University of British Columbia found that those who perceive the risks posed by nanotechnology as 'novel' are more likely to believe that regulators are unprepared.

New method allows mass-producing graphene-based field effect transistors

Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) announced a method for the mass production of boron/nitrogen co-doped graphene nanoplatelets, which led to the fabrication of a graphene-based field -effect transistor (FET) with semiconducting nature. This opens up opportunities for practical use in electronic devices.
