A micro-sized polymeric net wrapping around brain tumors, just like a fishing net around a shoal of fish: this is the microMESH, a new nanomedicine device capable to conform around the surface of tumor masses and efficiently deliver drugs.
A new superbug-destroying coating developed by scientists could be utilized on implants and wound dressings to inhibit and treat potentially lethal fungal and bacterial infections.
A new self-assembling nanomaterial designed by biomedical engineers from Duke University stimulates major cells in the immune system that can help reduce damage caused by inflammatory disorders.
An innovative nanofiber production method known as “centrifugal multispinning” has been developed by scientists from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). The new method will pave the way for safe and economical mass production of high-performance polymer nanofibers.
Although DNA sequencing has now turned more common, very few understand how difficult it is to extract even a single molecule of DNA from a biological sample.
The idea of implantable sensors that continuously transmit information on vital values and concentrations of substances or drugs in the body has fascinated physicians and scientists for a long time.
What is thinner than thin? One of the answers is 2D materials. These are unique materials of science whose width and length measure just one or two atoms thick.
Researchers from China have recently leveraged a new approach to improve the activity of peptides against Gram-negative bacteria efficiently through the conjugation of the peptides onto a rod-like virus.
Researchers at the University of Southampton have developed a new way of using nanomaterials to identify and enrich skeletal stem cells - a discovery which could eventually lead to new treatments for major bone fractures and the repair of lost or damaged bone.
Nanowires are, undoubtedly, crucial components for next-generation sensors, nanoelectronics, and nanomedicine.
