ACIN 2013 is an international symposium on Advanced Complex Inorganic Nanomaterials jointly organized by the University of Namur and the Universite Catholique de Louvain. The event will take place from July 14 to 19, 2013 in Namur, Belgium.
Grants of almost $19 million will help to develop technologies to dramatically reduce the cost of DNA sequencing, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health, announced today.
The transparent electronics that were pioneered at Oregon State University may find one of their newest applications as a next-generation replacement for some uses of non-volatile flash memory, a multi-billion dollar technology nearing its limit of small size and information storage capacity.
A variety of approaches have been used to make C-dots, but most require coating of the particles with other molecules to achieve useful luminescence. Now, work led by Amita Pathak at the Indian Institute of Technology has produced water-soluble C-dots that selectively emit light across the entire visible range without any surface coating.
Main objective of the European NanoValid project is the development of new reference methods and certified reference materials, including methods for characterization, detection/quantification, dispersion control and labelling, as well as hazard identification, exposure and risk assessment of engineered nanomaterials.
Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego have developed a novel technology that can fabricate, in mere seconds, microscale three dimensional structures out of soft, biocompatible hydrogels.
Scientists at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden describe in a new study how so-called DNA origami can enhance the effect of certain cytostatics used in the treatment of cancer. With the aid of modern nanotechnology, scientists can target drugs direct to the tumour while leaving surrounding healthy tissue untouched.
