Next-Gen Nano Composite Devices Aim To Reduce Complexity for NanoMedicine
By: Vance McCarthy

Researchers at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute (Buffalo, NY), are working on a new generation of nanodevices to improve imaging and treatment of cancer and other diseases.

The work of Drs. Mohamed K. Khan, M.D., Ph.D. and Lajos P. Balogh, Ph.D., co-directors of the NanoBiotechnology Center of Roswell Parkís Department of Radiation Medicine, focuses on Composite NanoDevices (CNDs), an emerging class of hybrid nanoparticulate materials. CNDs are composite nanodevices made from dendrimer-based polymers, for example from poly(amidoamine) [(PAMAMs)].

Nanotech Delivery Request: A Corporate Presentation from Merck Research Laboratories

Representatives from Merck will make a special presentation to researchers and scientists in universities and companies at the Nanotech 2007 conference on May 23, 2007 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California.

The presentation will focus on areas Merck is especially interested in developing collaboration around enabling technologies that can be applied to the targeted delivery of siRNA particles in-vivo.

Nanotech 2007 Keynote Update: Dr. Altaf Carim, Co-Chair of the National Science & Technology Council, NNIís Governing Body
By: Vance McCarthy

Dr. Altaf Carim, a leading scientist with the governing body for the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), will deliver a keynote address at Nanotech 2007, the nationís largest Nanotech Conference and Trade Show, May 20-24, 2007, in Santa Clara, California.

[The NNI is managed within the NSTC, a Cabinet-level council through which the President coordinates U.S. Government science, space, and technology policies and activities. The NSTCís Nanoscale Science Engineering and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee is composed of representatives from agencies participating in the NNI.
