Nanomedicine and the future of space exploration.

Group post

Greetings from Georgia, USA.

Lets see if we can increase the traffic to this group. Anybody up to talk about nanomedicine and its role in space exploration. For example :
(a) The use of nanomedical devices for remote monitoring of the health of astronauts.
(b) The use of nanotechnology to prevent and control radiation poisoning wich may have some applications here on Earth also.

Talking about remote monitoring I would like to encourage somebody to work in the field of veterinary id microchips. So far the microchips in use here in the USA only provide us with an id number that help in the recovering of lost pets. I think it would be something great if somebody using nanotechnology applications can made those microchips more useful. For example made the microchip provide us with certain information as heart rate, body temperature and oxygen levels. This can made veterinary office visits less stressfull to the pets plus with an appropriate software the owners can transmit that data via Internet to the veterinary hospital.

Any comments are welcome!

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
