Scientists across Russia are setting their minds to new inventions to net some of the billions of state dollars being poured into the field of nanotechnology. But they remain sceptical after years of neglect by the government.
The Sykes Research Group at Tufts University has posted a YouTube video that provides an introduction to the study of alternative energy sources and the role that nanotechnology techniques and applications play.
A multifunctional drug delivery system consisting of a lipid-based nanoparticle, a standard anticancer drug, and a short nucleic acid designed to augment the activity of that drug has demonstrated the ability to treat drug-resistant tumor cells.
Two researchers working independently of one another have developed new methods for measuring the biological activity of nanomaterials in a highly systematic manner that enable them to draw important insights about nanomaterial biologic activity.
Researchers have identified the major mechanisms that cancer cells use to neutralize the cytotoxic, or cell-killing, effects of anticancer drugs, and now they are using nanotechnology to help derail drug resistance and improve the odds of successfully treating cancer.
Investors could make substantial returns over the next five to 10 years by investing in companies working in the field of medical nanotechnology, a report on the fledgling sector published Thursday said.
