According to the World Health Organization, about 785 million people around the world lack a clean source of drinking water. Despite the vast amount of water on Earth, most of it is seawater and freshwater accounts for only about 2.5% of the total.
The secret behind the unique personalities of an individual lies in the human brain. But the question is whether people are aware of the fact that it can also develop the basis of highly efficient computing devices.
Remarkable developments in the field of cancer research in recent years have directed people to the next level in cancer therapy, including vaccines for cancer. But direct inoculation of these vaccines in the affected individuals has often met with failure to deliver the required anti-tumor effects.
Researchers working at the Cell Signaling Regulation Laboratory at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) have developed a new affordable and reproducible system for the co-cultivation of cells. The system is built on a polymerized BSA membrane.
Scientists have developed a 'nanobody' - a small fragment of a llama antibody - that is capable of chasing out human cytomegalovirus as it hides away from the immune system.
Classical molecular sieve membranes, with 3D microparticles and 2D nanosheets as primary building blocks, are promising in chemical separation.
Nanomaterials have been used in a variety of emerging applications, such as in targeted pharmaceuticals or to bolster other materials and products such as sensors and energy harvesting and storage devices.
No one wants bad breath -- not when visiting friends and family, at a job interview, and especially not on a first date.
The article represents the transmission electron microscopy and flow cytometry study of A-549 cellular uptake of Pr3+:LaF3 nanoparticles. The Pr3+:LaF3 nanoparticles are promising platforms for cell nano-sensors.
A new nanotechnology development by an international research team led by Tel Aviv University researchers will make it possible to generate electric currents and voltage within the human body through the activation of various organs.
