NYU researchers break nano barrier to engineer the first protein microfiber

PUBLIC RELEASE DATE: 23-Oct-2014 Contact: Kathleen Hamilton kathleen.hamilton@nyu.edu 718-260-3792 New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering @nyupoly Researchers at the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering have broken new ground in the development of proteins that form specialized fibers used in medicine and nanotechnology. For as long as scientists have been able to create new proteins that are capable of self-assembling into fibers, their work has taken place on the nanoscale. For the first time, this achievement has been realized on the microscalea leap of magnitude in size that presents significant new opportunities for using engineered protein fibers.

Nano-particles hold promise to treat sore eyes

Toronto, Oct 9 (IANS): Researchers from the University of Waterloo in Canada have developed a topical solution containing nano-particles that will combat dry eye syndrome with only one application a week. Currently, for those suffering from dry eye syndrome, the only recourse to ease the painful condition is to use drug-laced eye drops three times a day. The new eye drop progressively delivers the right amount of drug-infused nano-particles to the surface of the eyeball over a period of five days before the body absorbs them
