In a possible advance for diabetics, UC San Diego has created a way to measure glucose with a special ink that’s applied to the skin with an ordinary pen. The “bio ink” causes a chemical reaction that reveals glucose levels which are then read by a small wearable sensor. “This is a proof-of-concept step that […]

Editor’s Note: Great to see the advancement in applying nanotechnology for targeted therapeutics and in particular this approach which does not require customized functionalization of the particles for specific cancers.  This is game changing not just in the treatment of cancer but also in early detection of precancerous cells.  Something that was had not been […]

by Elizabeth Armstrong Moore ,Dec. 8, 2014 – 5:00 AM PST If you thought you knew what high-res slow-motion video looks like, think again. Researchers have recently captured images of biomolecular activity so slowly and in such detail that, lined up into a movie, they can reveal the activity of atoms, conceivably allowing us to […]

A self-assembling nanoparticle designed by a UConn professor is the key component of a potent new malaria vaccine that is showing promise in early tests. For years, scientists trying to develop a malaria vaccine have been stymied by the malaria parasite’s ability to transform itself and “hide” in the liver and red blood cells of […]

Someday soon, targeting medical treatments at just the right part of the body will get a lot easier, and that’s because we’ll have nanomachines to help us. Scientists are building devices so small they could travel through the bloodstream like the Magic School bus to deliver insulin for diabetics who need it or attack cancer […]

Scientists from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI) have jointly developed a new nanomedicine that will allow glaucoma patients to do away with daily eye drops. Glaucoma is a disease which can lead to blindness. Currently there are a number of treatments available for this disease with varying levels of […]
