Professor Alexander Seifalian There aren’t many scientists who have grown human cells on the back of a butterfly wing, but Alexander is one of them! Professor Alexander Seifalian (UCL Centre for Nanotechnology & Regenerative Medicine) and his team are aiming to make organ donation a thing of the past, combining nano-composite materials with stem cell technologies for the growth of replacement organs. He used his discoveries to fight for the life of a young Icelandic man whose throat was destroyed by cancer. Given two weeks to live, Alexander set out to build for the man the world’s first artificial windpipe, made from nanomaterials and stem cells – and succeeded
A technique using anesthesia-containing nanoparticles — drawn to the targeted area of the body by magnets — could one day provide a useful alternative to nerve block for local anesthesia in patients, suggests an experimental study in the April issue of Anesthesia & Analgesia, official journal of the International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS). “We have established proof of principle that it is possible to produce ankle block in the rat by intravenous injection of magnetic nanoparticles associated with ropivacaine and magnet application at the ankle,” write Dr Venkat R.R

Outside of smartwatches, wristbands, and smart eyewear, wearable technology is making waves in the medical community. For example, weve already heard about health-monitoring tattoos, which can tell doctors about how your heart, muscles, or brain are functioning. The next evolutionary step could be similar smart patches, developed using nano technology, which not only deliver drugs into your system, but know when youve had enough or need a higher dose.

UTICA — With Nano Utica and the Quad-C project promising to create more than 1,000 high-tech jobs in the Mohawk Valley, the region has been hearing a lot about nanotechnology and the ways it is revolutionizing research and development in medicine, computing, new materials, food, energy and other areas. On Saturday, March 29, from 9 a.m.
Pyongyang, March 19 (KCNA) — The 29th Science and Technology Festival of Kim Il Sung University took place here on March 11-14. On display at the festival, divided into discussion and exhibition of sci-tech achievements and exchange of new technologies, were at least 290 research findings and papers on latest science and technology and scores of new technologies and intellectual products in forms of model, diagram and CD, all of them which are conducive to the development of the basic science and the building of an economic power.
By Clinton Shaffer Photonics West serves as the perennial indicator of market trends for the photonics and optics industries. At this years event, held last month in San Francisco, one of the pervasive themes I observed at both the technical conference and the exhibition was the increasing role photonics and optics are playing in the development of advanced biomedical technologies. That trend is poised to continue well into the future
