Post-doctoral fellowships in Portugal - International career development opportunities with INL and Marie Curie Actions

Introduction



The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) is launching a second call within its postdoctoral

fellowship programme – The NanoTRAINforGrowth Programme. INL´s international Postdoctoral

fellowship programme allows for experienced researchers (from all over the world and of

all nationalities) to sketch out a research project and work on their own research idea at INL´s

facilities. The fellows will have a chance to work on…

Unique nano carrier targets drug delivery to cancer cells

Credit: Donglu Shi A unique nanostructure developed by a team of international researchers, including those at the University of Cincinnati, promises improved all-in-one detection, diagnoses and drug-delivery treatment of cancer cells.   The first-of-its-kind nanostructure is unusual because it can carry a variety of cancer-fighting materials on its double-sided (Janus) surface and within its porous interior. Because of its unique structure, the nano carrier can do all of the following:…

Researchers measure flow from a nanoscale fluid jet

Fluid jets are all around us: from inkjet printing, to the “Old Faithful” geyser in Yellowstone National Park, to cosmological jets several thousand light years long. A Northwestern University researcher with collaborators from Cambridge University, Oxford University, and Centro Nacional de Biotecnología have recently verified the classical Landau-Squire theory in the tiniest submerged jet. The diameter of their jets were in the range of 20 to 150 nanometers, which is the length of just a…

Traces of DNA exposed by twisted light

Structures that put a spin on light reveal tiny amounts of DNA with 50 times better sensitivity than the best current methods, a collaboration between the University of Michigan and Jiangnan University in China has shown. Highly sensitive detection of DNA can help with diagnosing patients, solving crimes and identifying the origins of biological contaminants such as a pathogen in a water supply. “It really does not matter where the target DNA is from,” said Nicholas Kotov, the Joseph B. and…

Public wants labels for food nanotech—and they’re willing to pay for itPublic wants labels for food nanotech—and they’re willing to pay for it

New research from North Carolina State University and the University of Minnesota finds that people in the United States want labels on food products that use nanotechnology – whether the nanotechnology is in the food or is used in food packaging. The research also shows that many people are willing to pay more for the labeling. Study participants supported labeling products in which nanotechnology had been added to food, as well as products in which nanotechnology had been incorporated into…

Carbon Nanotube Chips Go Ballooning for Climate Science

A huge plastic balloon floated high in the skies over New Mexico on Sept. 29, 2013, carrying instruments to collect climate-related test data with the help of carbon nanotube chips made by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The onboard instrument was an experimental spectrometer designed to collect and measure visible and infrared wavelengths of light ranging from 350 to 2,300 nanometers. Simpler, lighter and less expensive than conventional counterparts, the…

Polymer scientists jam nanoparticles, trapping liquids in useful shapes

Sharp observation by doctoral student Mengmeng Cui in Thomas Russell’s polymer science and engineering laboratory at the University of Massachusetts Amherst recently led her to discover how to kinetically trap and control one liquid within another, locking and separating them in a stable system over long periods, with the ability to tailor and manipulate the shapes and flow characteristics of each.   Russell, her advisor, points out that the advance holds promise for a wide range of…

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
