Researchers developed a cheaper and more effective way of neutralizing deadly snake venom.
Candies and gums are not just bad for your teeth, but for your intestinal barrier too.
Researchers from University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center have discovered that nanoparticles could be a solution to making breast cancer treatments more effective as it can slow down tumor growth, sensitize cancer cells and stop breast cancer from spreading.
The study of nanoparticles acquiring biological functions has had a significant step forward through an unlikely source: sperm tails. Specifically, the enzymes that propel sperm tails.
A team of researchers from India has discovered a novel use for sugarcane pulp. Bagasse, or sugarcane waste, could be turned into a source of highly fluorescent carbon quantum dots, cutting down the amount of agricultural waste generated by sugarcane plantations and providing a new source of light.
You might want to cover your nose the next time you are going out the city. A study conducted by the researchers of Universities Lancaster, Oxford and Manchester found out that the air we breathe can potentially increase the risk of having Alzheimer's disease.
A powerful new “superlens” could help observe more intricate details that the regular microscope could not see.
Vanderbilt researchers recently modified batteries by adding millions of quantum dots made from iron pyrite, or fool's gold. This not only allows the enhanced batteries to charge faster, but also endure more charge cycles.
Using nano-sized particles of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, researchers have found a way to increase the growth and antioxidant content of tomato plants. This may soften the impact population growth has on natural resources in the future.
This is how far science has come: There are 3D-printed micro-robots of fish swimming around, powered by hydrogen peroxide. Researchers think they will inspire “smart” microrobots with the ability to detox, sense, and direct drug delivery.
In work that will likely have far-ranging implications for colloids, nanoparticles, and molecules, researchers at University of Chicago were for the first time able to observe particles gathering in a planetary-formation type process.
New research suggests that microscopic drones could be used to sneak in and repair damaged arteries to prevent heart attacks before they happen.
