Printing nanoparticle shapes for medical applications

19/04/2019

Personal drug delivery or nano-robotic systems could be a key concept for future medical applications. In this context, scientists of the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have recently developed a technology to customize the shapes of polymers and polymeric nanoparticles using DNA.

A new method of using AI discovered

18/04/2019

Her research on so-called micro swimmers led to discovering a new method of using artificial intelligence in her field. PhD-student Saga Helgadóttir’s breakthrough has attracted the attention of international research groups before her results have even been published.

New Method: ultrafast 3D images of nanostructures

17/04/2019

Lensless microscopy with X-rays, or coherent diffractive imaging, is a promising approach. It allows researchers to analyse complex three-dimensional structures, which frequently exist in nature, from a dynamic perspective. Whilst two-dimensional images can already be generated quickly and in an efficient manner, creating 3D images still presents a challenge.

Tiny light-up barcodes identify molecules by their twinkling

16/04/2019

An imaging technique developed at Duke University could make it possible to peer inside cells and watch dozens of different molecules in action at once -- by labeling them with short strands of light-up DNA that blink on and off with their own unique rhythm.

Imaging technology will offer new clues to embryonic development

11/04/2019

Soon after conception, an embryo's circulatory system connects to that of its mother. Complications that occur at this critical time can result in miscarriage or birth defects with long-term chronic conditions. Unfortunately, limitations in imaging technologies prevent researchers from fully understanding the cellular-level events leading up to this crucial point.

Measurement of semiconductor material: now 100,000 times more sensitive

10/04/2019

The enhanced power of the new measuring technique to characterize materials at scales much smaller than any current technologies will accelerate the discovery and investigation of 2D, micro- and nanoscale materials.

Slug glue for medical adhesives

09/04/2019

The Dusky Arion slug produces a defensive glue that fouls the mouthparts of any would-be predator. Two new studies reveal more about how this glue achieves its strong sticking power and flexibility, insights that could be used to create better medical adhesives.

Nanotechnology-enhanced biochip

05/04/2019

The difficulty in spotting minute amounts of disease circulating in the bloodstream has proven a stumbling block in the detection and treatment of cancers that advance stealthily with few symptoms. With a novel electrochemical biosensing device that identifies the tiniest signals these biomarkers emit, a pair of NJIT inventors are hoping to bridge this gap.
