DFG to Continue Support for Building Tiny Machine-Like Molecules

DFG to Continue Support for Building Tiny Machine-Like Molecules

Great excitement at Kiel University: As the DFG (German Research Foundation) announced today (Thursday, May 21), it will continue to support the research on molecules which function like machines with another 8.9 million EUR. This funding will allow the scientists in Germany's northernmost state to develop new engineering techniques for building tiny machine-like molecules over the next four years. [More]

Scientists Develop Entirely Artificial Molecular Pump

Scientists Develop Entirely Artificial Molecular Pump

Using nature for inspiration, a team of Northwestern University scientists is the first to develop an entirely artificial molecular pump, in which molecules pump other molecules. This tiny machine is no small feat. The pump one day might be used to power other molecular machines, such as artificial muscles. [More]
Therapeutic Cells Encapsulated in Nanoporous Capsules Can Treat from Within Tumors

Therapeutic Cells Encapsulated in Nanoporous Capsules Can Treat from Within Tumors

Attacking the perennial problem of systemic toxicity from typical chemotherapy treatments, Dartmouth investigators, led by Barjor Gimi, PhD, have engineered therapeutic cells encapsulated in nanoporous capsules to secrete antitumor molecules from within the tumor. [More]
Coupling Advanced Neutron Scattering with High-Performance Computing Could Enable Better Understanding of Protein Function

Coupling Advanced Neutron Scattering with High-Performance Computing Could Enable Better Understanding of Protein Function

The Science
Whether inside algae converting biomass to fuels or human cells responding to radiation exposure, proteins change their shape via atomic motions to perform a specific function. Today these shape-changing processes are still difficult to measure and understand. Scientists recently determined three classes of atomic motion using neutron scattering coupled with computational simulations. [More]

Magnetic Particles at Room Temperature Can Detect Nuclear Spins of Single Biomolecules

Magnetic Particles at Room Temperature Can Detect Nuclear Spins of Single Biomolecules

Physicists of the University of Basel and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute were able to show for the first time that the nuclear spins of single molecules can be detected with the help of magnetic particles at room temperature. In Nature Nanotechnology, the researchers describe a novel experimental setup with which the tiny magnetic fields of the nuclear spins of single biomolecules - undetectable so far - could be registered for the first time. The proposed concept would improve medical diagnostics as well as analyses of biological and chemical samples in a decisive step forward. [More]
