A London effort to develop point-of-care nanosensors for HIV diagnosis and monitoring
The London Centre for Nanotechnology will develop a new device to enable people living with HIV to monitor their own health and the effectiveness of their treatments, thanks to a 2 million EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) grant announced today.
The device will give peo...
New horizons in modelling surface processes
...aterials Simulation Laboratory on Monday 31 March 2008. The four-day conference will explore the properties and manipulation of nanostructures such as nanosensors
that could one day be used for small molecule drug screening. Talks and posters will also cover the chemistry of bioglass implants and a new polymer ...
UCR engineers to develop new tool to measure how environmental exposures affect health
...f these exhaust toxics have been shown to cause respiratory illness and cancer.
The light-weight badges will each house an array of electrochemical nanosensors
for detecting and measuring exhaust. The measurements will be used eventually in studies focusing on what role diesel and/or gasoline exhaust play in ...
