No takers yet for EPA's in-depth Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program

On January 28th, 2008, EPA launched the Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program (NMSP). To date EPA has received three submissions for nanoscale materials under the basic program. EPA has also received commitments from ten additional companies to submit data on nanoscale materials under the basic program. Thus far no one has signed up to participate in the in-depth portion of the NMSP.

Counting immune cells on a 'protein printboard'

In order to monitor how far an HIV infection has progressed, the number of immune cells - lymphocytes - must be counted. Researchers at the University of Twente have developed a method that neatly arranges the antibodies that bind to these immune cells on a 'molecular printboard'.

Finding yields creation of bacteria-resistant films

Having found that whether bacteria stick to surfaces depends partly on how stiff those surfaces are, MIT engineers have created ultrathin films made of polymers that could be applied to medical devices and other surfaces to control microbe accumulation.
