Innovative 3D-printed swimming microfish can deliver drugs and locate toxins inside the human body

Many of the recent breakthroughs, in medical science, have been the result of the implementation of nanotechnology principles. These include the use of nanodiamonds for targeted drug delivery and therapeutics; gold nanoparticles for the detection of breast cancer as well as specially-designed nano drones that help prevent heart attacks by repairing arterial inflammation. Using an…



UCSD’s newly designed composite nanomaterial can capture solar energy with 90 percent efficiency

Previously we had talked about a nanoparticle composite made from gold, that could potentially help in detecting breast cancer. Well, this time around, a group of San Diego-based scientists from University of California (UCSD), have successfully concocted a special composite nanomaterial that has the wondrous ability to convert almost a whopping 90 percent of sunlight…
