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.
Chair of the Bioengineering Department at The University of Texas at Arlington is investigating whether a combination of nanoparticles and light therapy can better treat traumatic brain injuries on the battlefield.
Bowel cancer survival rates could be improved if chemotherapy drugs were delivered via tiny nanoparticles to the diseased organs rather than oral treatment.
Scientists at the University of Nottingham have developed an ultrasonic imaging system, which can be deployed on the tip of a hair-thin optical fibre, and will be insertable into the human body to visualise cell abnormalities in 3D.
Scientists from Empa, together with their collaborators at Eawag, have been designing new materials and technologies to eliminate pathogens from drinking water, which so far could barely be removed with traditional measures, or only with high-cost, complex processes.
At the University of Chicago, scientists have developed an absolutely innovative, promising treatment for COVID-19 in the form of nanoparticles with the ability to trap SARS-CoV-2 viruses inside the body and use the body’s own immune system to kill them.
Australian researchers have identified neutralising nanobodies that block the SARS-CoV-2 virus from entering cells in preclinical models.
Bacteria are presently ahead of humans in the arms race 'mankind against bacteria.' Antibiotics—the previous miracle weapons of humans—are failing more often because tricky maneuvers are used by microorganisms to safeguard themselves from the impacts of these medications.
