Researchers at UC San Diego have developed a novel method of disguising nanoparticles as red blood cells, which will enable them to evade the body’s immune system and deliver cancer-fighting drugs straight to a tumor.
A new biomaterial designed for repairing damaged human tissue doesn’t wrinkle up when it is stretched.
Diagnostics: Tiny motors capture cancer cells and DNA from biological fluids
The existing approaches used to detect circulating cancer cells. A team of researchers led by Liangfang Zhang and Joseph Wang, University of California – San Diego, USA, have come up with a new method to pickup and transport cancer cell payloads under physiological conditions and
They were named as SCI Scholars. Part of the award is a 10 week internship this summer at a chemical plant. Nathan is going to Air Liquide and Eli is going to Chevron Phillips.
For global leadership in the field of mechanical behavior of materials and for original and seminal contributions to the fundamental mechanisms in shock compression, shear localization, grain-size effects, and biological materials.
Congratulations to Dr. Jennifer Cha who has been selected as an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow for 2011.
Richard Feynman has left an indelible imprint upon Caltech and its culture, and upon science worldwide. His vision for the field of Nanotechnology underpins the very foundation of our department of NanoEngineering. Caltech will be hosting two visionary events, celebrating his iconoclastic and c
Congratulations to Daniel Kagen and faculty advisor Joseph Wang, with the research poster entitled "BIOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS OF CATALYTIC NANOMOTORS".
This award recognizes a career of excellence in teaching both undergraduates and graduate students, mentoring graduate students, and contributing the development of educational curricula in her field.
Dr. Shaochen Chen's website is now online. Dr. Chen is a Professor in the Nanoengineering Department at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He is also a faculty member of the Institute of Engineering in Medicine at UCSD.
