A hair strand-thin worm is providing substantial clues on how nerves regenerate, offering insight and hope to finding genes that affect nerve generation and ultimately new drugs and therapies for human neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's.
Dr. Pradeep Haldar, Professor and Head of the Nanoengineering Constellation at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, today received the Award for Excellence in Research from the University at Albany for his outstanding research and scholarship over a sustained number of years.
Researchers at Purdue University have discovered a possible new pathway for anti-tumor drugs to kill cancer cells and proposed how to improve the design of tiny drug-delivery particles for use in nanomedicine.
As microchips shrink, even tiny defects in the lines, dots and other shapes etched on them become major barriers to performance. Princeton engineers have now found a way to literally melt away such defects, using a process that could dramatically improve chip quality without increasing fabrication cost.
