The ultrathin material graphene is defined by its extremely small bending modulus—superflimsiness.
Preclinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of an experimental flu vaccine that contains scores of microscopic spherical sacs carrying infection-fighting proteins all through the body.
Before the huge potential of tiny nanocarriers for highly targeted drug delivery and environmental clean-up can be realized, scientists first need to be able to see them.
A new software tool developed by Earlham Institute researchers will help bioinformaticians improve the quality and accuracy of their biological data, and avoid mis-assemblies.
Blocked blood vessels in the brains of stroke patients prevent oxygen-rich blood from getting to cells, causing severe damage. Plants and some microbes produce oxygen through photosynthesis.
A filter made from polymer nanothreads blew three kinds of commercial masks out of the water by capturing 99.9% of coronavirus aerosols in an experiment.
World-first nanotechnology developed by the University of South Australia could change the lives of thousands of people living with cystic fibrosis (CF) as groundbreaking research shows it can improve the effectiveness of the CF antibiotic Tobramycin, increasing its efficacy by up to 100,000-fold.
Scientists from the Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research at Osaka University used machine learning methods to enhance the signal-to-noise ratio in data collected when tiny spheres are passed through microscopic nanopores cut into silicon substrates.
Researchers from Hong Kong Baptist University, in collaboration with Cornell University, have developed a novel targeted therapy for triple-negative breast cancer that uses a specially-designed nano-carrier to deliver the Chinese medicine compound gambogic acid.
Implantable medical devices are extensively used to support and improve physiological functions, track and map biological signals, and treat various diseases.
