Science fiction? Hardly, and there’s more – It can also desalinate water, be used as flexible water filtration membranes, help recover energy from desalination waste brine, be made into flexible solar cells and can also double the lifespan of lithium ion batteries. With its superior bacteria-killing capabilities, it can also be used to develop a… Continue reading
La cistitis recurrente es una infección del tracto urinario con gran prevalencia y de especial incidencia entre las mujeres. Este proyecto conjunto de las Universidades de Vigo y de Santiago, la spin-off Nanoimmunotech y las empresas CZ Veterinaria-Biofabri y Nanogap tiene como objetivo el desarrollo de la primera vacuna a nivel mundial para esta enfermedad. La iniciativa cuenta con tres millones de euros y el apoyo del programa Feder-Innterconecta del CDTI.
Better diagnosis and treatment of cancer could hinge on the ability to better understand a single cell at its molecular level. New research offers a more comprehensive way of analysing one cell»s unique behavior, using an array of colors to show patterns that could indicate why a cell will or won»t become cancerous….

Using a new type of camera that makes extremely fast snapshots with an extremely high resolution, it is now possible to observe the behaviour of magnetic materials at the nanoscale. The observed behaviour changes our understanding of data storage says Theo Rasing, one of the authors, as reported in Nature Materials on 17 March…. Continue reading
Swiss scientists have combined two materials with advantageous electronic properties-graphene and molybdenite-into a flash memory prototype that is very promising in terms of performance, size, flexibility and energy consumption…. Continue reading
In a ceremony to be held on Wednesday, March 20, in Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will present U.S. President Barack Obama with nano-sized inscribed replicas of the Declarations of Independence of the United States and the State of Israel…. Continue reading
Abstract: Femtoinjection has been proposed as a feasible approach for the targeted delivery of a decoy oligodeoxynucleotide (ODN) into a single ES cell for the study of transcription factor activity. Here, we evaluated the utility of decoy ODN delivery via femtoinjection in an ES cell model in which Venus fluorescent protein was expressed under… Continue reading
Abstract: A highly sensitive label-free immunosensor for the detection of HIV-1 is newly developed based on localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) method. Uniform nanopattern of circular Au-dots (10-20nm) was fabricated on indium tin oxide (ITO) coated glass substrate by simple electrochemical deposition method. The surface of Au nanopattern… Continue reading
Abstract: Dendritic cells (DC), which play a major role in development of cell-mediated immunity, represent opportunities to develop novel anti-HIV vaccines. Dendrimers have been proposed as new carriers to ameliorate DC antigen loading and in this way, we have determined the potential use of maltose decorated neutrally and positively charged G4… Continue reading
