From Lab-on-a-Chip to Lab-in-the-Body: The Role of Nanotechnology in the Miniaturization of Medical Diagnostic Tools

Fictional inventor Wayne Szalinsky built a shrink ray while wearing a Caltech hoodie in the film Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. And a shrunken sub and its five-person crew cleared a blood clot deep inside someone’s brain in Fantastic Voyage. Now Axel Scherer, Caltech’s Bernard Neches Professor of Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics and Physics, is miniaturizing medical equipment without benefit of a shrink ray. Q: What do you do? A: There’s a fantastic scene in Star Trek: The Next…

NJIT researchers invent flexible battery made from carbon nanotubes

Researchers at NJIT have developed a flexible battery made with carbon nanotubes that could potentially power electronic devices with flexible displays.  NJIT Professor Som Mitra (left) invented a flexible battery with assistance from Zhiqian Wang, a doctoral student in chemistry.   Electronic manufacturers are now making flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays, a pioneering technology that allow devices such as cell phones, tablet computers and TVs to literally fold up. And…

Designer piercings: New membrane pores with DNA nanotechnology

A new way to build membrane-crossing pores, using Lego-like DNA building blocks, has been developed by scientists at UCL, in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Cambridge and the University of Southampton.   The approach provides a simple and low cost tool for synthetic biology and the technique has potential applications in diagnostic devices and drug discovery. The research is featured in the current issue of the journal Angewandte Chemie. Membrane pores are the gateways…

Important mechanism behind nanoparticle reactivity discovered

An international team of researchers has used pioneering electron microscopy techniques to discover an important mechanism behind the reaction of metallic nanoparticles with the environment. Crucially, the research led by the University of York and reported in Nature Materials, shows that oxidation of metals – the process that describes, for example, how iron reacts with oxygen, in the presence of water, to form rust – proceeds much more rapidly in nanoparticles than at the macroscopic…

New implantable sensor paves way to long-term monitoring

Nitric oxide (NO) is one of the most important signaling molecules in living cells, carrying messages within the brain and coordinating immune system functions. In many cancerous cells, levels are perturbed, but very little is known about how NO behaves in both healthy and cancerous cells. “Nitric oxide has contradictory roles in cancer progression, and we need new tools in order to better understand it,” says Michael Strano, the Carbon P. Dubbs Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT. “Our…

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
