NNCO Director Dr. Michael Meador gave a lecture entitled "Nanotechnology 101: The Biggest Thing You've Never Seen" at the Royal Institution to a sold out crowd on October 20, 2015.
MIT chemists have devised a new way to build nanoparticles that can carry and deliver precise ratios of three or more different drugs.

DOE's Sandia National Laboratories was tapped by the Federal Lab Consortium for their work in Advanced Nanomaterials for Energy Conservation and Temperature Regulation.
The thin coating is invisible to the human eye and has been shown to make copper nearly 100 times more corrosion resistant.
These findings mean that dramatic reductions in power consumption are possible -- as much as one-millionth the amount of energy per operation used by transistors in modern computers.
Directed assembly is where scientists aim to manufacture nanostructures without individually manipulating each component. Instead, they set out precisely defined starting conditions and let the physics and chemistry do the rest.
Researcher at Brookhaven in protective clothing
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory have just developed a way to direct the self-assembly of multiple molecular patterns within a single material, producing new nanoscale architectures.
Just how small is the nanoscale? Our chart illustrates the size of the nanoscale relative to other everyday objects.
Researchers evaluated the size-dependent biological profiles of three monodisperse drug-silica nanoconjugates to determine the optimum particle size for tissue penetration and tumor inhibition.
This document gives a description of the activities underway in 2012 and 2013 and planned for 2014 by the Federal Government agencies participating in the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).
