Scientists combine two complementary spectroscopic techniques to investigate the structure of the Alzheimer's causing amyloid-beta peptide.
Gold is valuable – but that's not news, its renaissance is. What gold is able to do for us in the role of the most stable elemental nanoparticle – in the field of biology, assisted by nanotechnology, is remarkable. We're only starting to scratch the surface – with applications in drug delivery and bacterial transformations, amongst others. Arnab Chakraborty summarizes two recent studies in this promising field.
For the very first time, an artificial nanomotor has been successfully propelled through human blood by scientists from IISc, Bangalore. This may be the first step in realizing what was, until now, in the realm of science fiction – nanorobots that can navigate blood vessels and perform surgeries and deliver drugs.
