Joint discovery by IBM Research and Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology could help slow number of deaths from MRSA "superbug." Potential treatment arises from semiconductor research.
Georgia Tech scientists follow up their 2008 study on mice with findings that these nanoparticles target and attach themselves to human cancer cells just as effectively, then remove them from the body.
Researchers have developed a coating for clothes that repels bacteria.
An MIT team has developed a paper stick that could someday be used as an inexpensive and accurate way to detect a range of cancers. It holds particular promise for the developing world.
Princeton researchers say their two-camera approach offers the most detailed footage of a nano-sized particle to date, which could ultimately shed light on how viruses and cells interact.
Researchers work with gold nanoparticles to build a stretchy, conductive material that could go into medical devices and wearable technology.
A team of chemists at the University of Texas at El Paso report that, based on a review of nearly 100 scientific articles, little is known about the effects nanoparticles have on food crops.
Researchers at Penn State University explore the insides of our cells with nano-sized, rocket-shaped metal projectiles powered by sound.
Berkeley researchers have created flexible sensors that mimic a cat's whiskers from elastic fibers, nanotubes, and nanoparticles. Science: making robots cuter as well as more useful.
Intended for use in food packaging, the paper contains a coating of silver nanoparticles already found in such items as medical ointments and odor-resistant socks.
