Women scientists and engineers are making nanotechnology discoveries that will shape our future. A playlist of NNI podcasts shares some of their stories.
February 25, 2021
For American Heart Month, we celebrate nanotechnology-enabled advances to rewire damaged hearts and deliver the electrical signals needed to keep hearts beating.

Researchers have made temperature-resistant, injectable gels that are made of polymers and nanoparticles. These injectable gels could prove valuable for providing anti-malarial or anti-HIV treatments in under-resourced areas.

When two sheets of graphene are stacked atop each other at just the right angle, the layered structure morphs into a superconductor. Now, scientists have observed superconductivity in a sandwich of three twisted graphene sheets.
January 22, 2021
Researchers have developed a microneedle patch that can help detect small amounts of antibodies in interstitial fluid by using fluorescence nanolabels.
January 21, 2021
By embedding carbon nanotubes in the fibers of a bandage, scientists have created a continuous, noninvasive way to detect and monitor an infection in a wound.

A new NIH-funded study shows the potential of an adaptable, nanoparticle-based approach to coronavirus vaccine development and raises the possibility of training the immune system to recognize up to eight strains of coronavirus with a single shot.

When sheets of graphene are stacked on top of each other, tiny gaps form between the sheets. Now, researchers have found a way to orient those gaps in a way that makes them more useful for filtering water of nanoscale contaminants.

In a proof-of-concept experiment, researchers placed nanorods (used as catalysts) above gold nanobars, which "sculpted" light around the nanorods. This sculpted light changed the regions on the nanorods where chemical reactions took place.
January 13, 2021
Researchers have developed the first nanomaterial that demonstrates "photon avalanching." This discovery could lead to new applications in sensing, imaging, and light detection.
