Scientists using nanotechology at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry have created the first cavity-filling composite that kills harmful bacteria and regenerates tooth structure lost to bacterial decay.
Researchers at Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital have shown a new category of "green" nanoparticles comprised of a non-toxic, protein-based nanotechnology that can non-invasively cross the blood brain barrier and is capable of transporting various types of drugs.
To support the nation's nuclear-surveillance capabilities, researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) are developing ways to enhance the radiation-detection devices used at ports, border crossings, airports and elsewhere.
UCLA bioengineering researchers have taken advantage of cells' physical properties to develop a new instrument that slams cells against a wall of fluid and quickly analyzes the physical response, allowing for the identification of cancer and other cell states without expensive chemical tags.
The Transnational Access (TA) component for QNano is dedicated to providing Users from the European nanosafety community access to nanomaterials processing, characterisation and exposure assessment facilities (TAFs).
Scientists from Imperial College London (ICL) have collaborated with colleagues at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) to produce organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) that consistently achieve record-breaking carrier mobility through careful solution-processing of a blend of two organic semiconductors.
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has published three new appendices, updating Chapters R.7a, R.7b and R.7c of the Guidance on Information Requirements and Chemical Safety Assessment. These three new appendices are recommendations for registering nanomaterials.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory have designed a method to evaluate different conductors for use in metamaterial structures, which are engineered to exhibit properties not possible in natural materials.
The Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) has decided to classify practical training and examination topics of the Students Nanotechnology Olympiad from this year on, officials announced on Monday.
Die chemische Industrie hat gemeinsam mit mehreren deutschen Institutionen zum Arbeitsschutz ein Strategiepapier erarbeitet, um Praktikern in Industrie und Behoerde bei der Anwendung von Nanomaterialien ein Werkzeug in die Hand zu geben, wie eine moegliche Exposition durch luftgetragene Nanopartikel am Arbeitsplatz gemessen und wie die Bewertung des Risikos fuer ein Hoechstmass an Sicherheit am Arbeitsplatz vorgenommen werden kann.
