Delivery of anticancer agents as nanoparticles has received much attention due to the unique accumulation behavior of nanoparticles at the tumor site. In the nanoparticulate drug delivery, the therapeutic agent of interest is encapsulated within the polymer matrix of biodegradable particles to achieve extended release. When encapsulated within a biodegradable polymer, the drug is released slowly over a period of time as the polymer degrades. In addition you attach the ligands on nanoparticle surface for target the cancer cell, you can encapsulate PH dependent polymer it delivers the drug particular PH. (Marslin et al., 2009-JBN)
I am a student pursuing M.Sc in Nanoscience, at Amity University, India. As per the syllabus of ours, we are suppose to take up an year of dissertation in the field of interest affiliated by esteemed Universities around the globe. So, I request you please give some suggestions to let me acknowledge about my future plans. I am deeply interested in Nanobiotechnology, concepts. I would be happy if I would get some interesting suggestions and advices too.
dear prof/reseracher, Its prashant kumar, submitting my ph.d thesis on non-lithographic techniques of surface nanostructuring in december 2008 at university of hyderabad. I have experience of thin film coating, synthesis of nanowires, nanodots and characterization by AFM, SEM, VSM, PL spectra, MR measurements, surface plasmons etc and I seek post-doctoral post and for that I require your help, plz. convey to me if you find anything interesting. or else plz. advise how to get into the groove.I can work towards materials science, engineering, chemical engineering, biomedical applications of nanoparticles, memory application of nanodots etc or any industrial applications of nanoparticles, nanodots or nanowires.
I am a "warrior", but Ive been in the field for so long, and have taken numerous lumps. I can tell you strait up, the world will never NOT have conflict, its a law of nature.
Here is a peice I find comforting for those of us that guard the gates of Liberty........
God and the Operator
To state the obvious, we live these days in a state of conflict and warfare. Hopefully these days will be short, but the general opinion of men who understand these matters is that these days may well go long. A tragedy of our current era is that men and women who take up the burden and honor of soldiery are often made to feel as though they are different, or unacceptable to the very society that they protect. On some occasions, these same men and women adopt a self-inflicted attitude that they have somehow been branded with the "Mark of Cain", and no longer belong to that society. At worst, after some of the things that have to be done to fulfill mission accomplishment, some of these men and women eventually feel that they are somehow beyond redemption.
In the Gospel of Matthew (8: 5-13) Jesus was approached be a Roman Centurion, who asked Jesus to come to the Centurion's home and heal a servant who was gravely ill. Jesus asks if He is to come to the Centurion's home to perform this cure and miracle. The Centurion responds in this way:
"Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter my house, but, only speak a word and my servant will be cured. For even I am a man under authority, and I have soldiers under me. I say to this soldier 'Go' and he goes, and another, 'Do this’ and he does it"
The verse continues in this way:
‘Jesus was amazed when He heard this, and said to those who were following Him, “This is the truth I tell you-not even in Israel have I found so great a faith."
What does this mean for our men and women in service today? Maybe not much to some, but consider this. The centurions were not the officers of the Roman army, nor were they the aristocrats and patricians of Roman society. The centurions were the battered, beat up, chewed out long service regulars who were in command of a group of soldiers making up what would today be two platoons. These were men who had spent their entire lives in the Roman Legions, and endured lives of constant combat. In short, the centurions were the Master Gunnery Sergeants of the ancient world. These were men who had killed with their hands in world of edged weapons and battlefield soaked in urine and blood, who bore scars and lived rough lives. And yet...and yet...
The centurion who came to Jesus in Matthew is now one of the most attractive characters in the Bible. To add to this, there was the centurion who recognized Jesus on the Cross as the Son of God, and there was Cornelius, the first gentile convert to Christian Faith—also a centurion. A centurion rescued Paul from the fury of a rioting mob. Another centurion saved Paul from a planned assassination on the road between Jerusalem and Ceasarea.
God found a use for these old NCO's of the ancient world. Even if their own society excluded these men, God did not. A line from Polybius' description of the Roman Army would be a good NCO Board requirement even today, as he states that:
"They (centurions) must not be venturesome seekers after danger as men who can command, steady in action and reliable; they ought not to be over anxious to rush into a fight, but when hard pressed, they must be ready to hold their posts."
Try and make this Word from Matthew live. The next time you see a salty old warhorse NCO climb off in the middle of some guy’s (or girl’s) back pockets, try and visualize him (or her) as the centurion who came to Jesus asking for the cure of his servant. Whether that works for you or not, try and remember that God not only had a use for the rough old centurions of the Roman Army, but that he also loved them, just as he loves the men and women who take up a soldier's life in our long days. This doesn't mean that God will love everything you do, you are still responsible for that, but you are not beyond redemption, and you will never be excluded from God unless you choose to be.
After all, God even loves E-8's.
Also, Hamamatsu has developed an InfraRed Detector, that leads to the sentinel lymphs. < which is where it really gets to spread quickly... check this:
(you will need to dig and "ask questions" about their Infrared ccd camera system.....i hope this helps.)
When peace fails, War..... intensive conflict with intent is all that remains. (Better known as Low Intensity Conflict.)
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 email@example.com
