...can sense chemicals and contaminants that may be harmful to astronauts, as well as a wide range of scientifically interesting compounds. "The chemical nanosensor is like a smoke detector that would fit on the end of an eraser," said Dan Powell, lead nanotechnologist for Goddard. The NCSU was developed by Dr. Ji...

Scientists discover how cancer may take hold

...stem allows the scientists to visually track the location and concentration of certain biochemicals. Our FRET technology with the novel tryptophan nanosensor has an added bonus, said Thijs. It can be used to identify new drugs that could reduce the ability of cancer cells to uptake tryptophan or their abili...
