A team of Luxembourg-based researchers, working at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine, has developed a research method that will allow scientists to study microbes in more depth than ever before.
Two new Basic Excellence Research Centres promoted by the Basque Government, the Basque Centre for Materials, Applications and Nanostructures (BCmaterials), dedicated to new materials, and the Basque Centre for Macromolecular Design & Engineering (Polymat), centred on macromolecular design, join the Basque nanoscience research.
EPFL scientists have developed a rapid, precise opto-mechanical measurement system that can be embedded into a silicon chip. This new technology could revolutionize the domain of sensors and atomic force microscopy.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a three-year $999,531 grant to Virginia Tech to optimize the laboratory processes used to make custom DNA molecules with the tools and methods of industrial engineering.
