Research conducted in the Kanzius/Curley Lab at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center shows that, when non-human subjects are exposed to 10 minutes of nonionizing RF radiation followed by 36 hours of treatment using targeted gold nanoparticles, the Kanzius RF machine and nanoparticles create an effective formula for controlling pancreatic cancer cells.
Researchers at MIT and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have shown that they can deliver the cancer drug cisplatin much more effectively and safely in a form that has been encapsulated in a nanoparticle, targeted to prostate tumor cells and activated once it reaches its target. The results from lab cells were confirmed in mice.
Research by engineers and cancer biologists at Virginia Tech (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University) indicate that using specific silicon microdevices might provide a new way to screen breast cancer cells' ability to metastasize.
The World Gold Council (WGC) revealed that a phase 1 clinical trial by CytImmune Sciences of a unique nanomedicine was sucessful. The medicine uses gold nanoparticles as the core of a delivery system for tumour-targeted drug delivery.
Researchers with the U.S. DOE's Berkeley Lab have been able to fabricate nanochannels that are only 2nm in size, using standard semiconductor manufacturing processes. These channels function differently than their larger counterparts.
King Abdulaziz City of Science and Technology signed an agreement with imec to host researchers from KACST-INTEL consortium Center of Excellence in Nano-manufacturing Applications at imec facilities in Belgium starting September 2011, for a period of three years.
An EBPG5000plusES will be delivered to the newly formed Nanotechnology and Application Center (SUNAC) of the Sabanci University based in Istanbul. The Gaussian Beam system fulfills the challenging requirements of the institute which will collaborate in the field of nanotechnology research with other institutions.
Environmental and scientific agencies in the United States and the United Kingdom have formed a joint $5 million scientific effort to develop new risk-management tools that government officials can use to effectively regulate nanomaterials.
The Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA) Nanotechnology Committee is sponsoring a Special Presentation session at APEC 2011 titled "Nanotechnology: Enabling the Next Generation of Power Electronics."
The Center for Micro/Nano Science and Technology at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan, has moved from Building of Science and Technology, Tzu-Chiang Campus, to the Building for Instrumentation Equipments, which occupies more than 600 square meters and includes cleanrooms and laboratories.
