Design of Multi-Component, Multi-Functional Nanomedical Systems for Drug/Gene Delivery and Theragnostics
02 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: James Leary
Multi-component and multifunctional nanoparticles hold great promise for drug/gene delivery and simultaneous diagnostics and therapeutics ("theragnostics"). Sophisticated multi-component systems can employ collections of specialized molecules in a nanodelivery system whose actions can be...
High-Aspect-Ratio Micromachining of Titanium: Enabling New Functionality and Opportunity in Micromechanical Systems Through Greater Materials Selection
18 Jun 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Masa Rao
Traditionally, materials selection has been limited in high-aspect-ratio micromechanical applications, due primarily to the predominance of microfabrication processes and infrastructure dedicated to silicon. While silicon has proven to be an excellent material for many of these applications, no...
Ionic Selectivity in Channels: complex biology created by the balance of simple physics
05 Jun 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Bob Eisenberg
An important class of biological molecules—proteins called ionic channels—conduct ions (like Na+ , K+ , Ca2+ , and Cl− ) through a narrow tunnel of fixed charge (‘doping’). Ionic channels control the movement of electric charge and current across biological membranes and so play a role in...
