The public transport industry is emerging from the skeleton services that operated during lockdown 3.0 and once again it aims to provide a safe environment for passengers to feel comfortable to ride on buses, trains and trams again.
IMDEA Nanociencia researchers measure the nanoscale heating of gold-based nanoparticles and find high temperature variations within the nanoscopic volume.
In a new study, physicists and chemists from Martin Luther University (MLU) have demonstrated a new approach in which tiny nanoparticles can be equipped with dyes and how these particles could be used in novel imaging techniques.
Researchers with the Kansas City Veterans Affairs Medical Center and North Dakota State University have designed a new way to deliver pancreatic cancer drugs that could make fighting the disease much easier. Encapsulating cancer drugs in nanoparticles shows potential to target tumors more effectively and avoid danger to other parts of the body.
The early contact tracing, treatment, and reduction of viral spread necessitate quick, sensitive diagnosis of COVID-19. But some people infected with SARS-CoV-2 obtain false-negative test results, which may lead to health risks for themselves and others.
Ultra-small nanomedicines of approximately 18 nm were fabricated by dynamic ion-pairing between Y-shaped block copolymers and nucleic acid drugs, such as siRNA and antisense drugs.
Since the earliest microscopes, scientists have been on a quest to build instruments with finer and finer resolution to image a cell's proteins - the tiny machines that keep cells, and us, running.
Researchers at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania have identified ionizable lipid nanoparticles that could be used to deliver mRNA as part of fetal therapy.
The SARS-CoV-2 virus that is causing the COVID-19 pandemic is just one of many different viruses in the coronavirus family. Many of these are circulating in populations of animals like bats and have the potential to "jump" into the human population, just as SARS-CoV-2 did.
Scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed insulin nanoparticles that may one day become the basis for an oral medicine, and an alternative to insulin injections for diabetic patients.
