Step 1 Go Solar and then outside

We need our Governments and Corperations to invest in solar technology, everyday that we do not collect or store energy from the Sun we are losing money and wasting current energy resources.Google has even gone solar but I remeber awhile ago watching a show on PBS in which Alan Alda “yea that Doctor from M.A.S.H. ” in which he… Continue reading Step 1 Go Solar and then outside

Night of the living enzyme

Night of the living enzyme Inactive enzymes entombed in tiny honeycomb-shaped holes in silica can spring to life, scientists at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have found. The discovery came when they decided to salvage enzymes that had been in a refrigerator long past their expiration date. Enzymes are proteins that are… Continue reading Night of the living enzyme

Cell-Like Nano Particles for Attacking Disease

Cell-Like Nano Particles for Attacking Disease Researchers are developing smart “nanocarriers” for drug delivery and diagnostics. By Kevin Bullis Using parts of living cells in a smart nanotechnology-based system, researchers in Switzerland have demonstrated a “nanocarrier” that can target specific types of cells and light up in response to conditions in their immediate environment. The… Continue reading Cell-Like Nano Particles for Attacking Disease

Nanosolution Halts Bleeding

Nanosolution Halts Bleeding A team of researchers at MIT and the University of Hong Kong have developed a biodegradable liquid that can quickly stop bleeding. Composed of peptides, the liquid self-assembles into a protective nanofiber gel when applied to a wound. Rutledge Ellis-Behnke, research scientist in the department of brain and cognitive sciences at MIT… Continue reading Nanosolution Halts Bleeding

Folding @ Home

Folding@Home is a goal to understand protien folding, misfolding and related diseases What is protein folding and how is folding linked to disease? Proteins are biology’s workhorses — its nanomachines. Before proteins can carry out these important functions, they assemble themselves, or “fold.” The process of protein folding, while critical and fundamental to virtually all… Continue reading Folding @ Home
