Nanotechnology in Tissue Engineering

Nanotechnology is currently being utilized for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Nanostructures can mimic tissue-specific bio-environments by designing constructs with particular biochemical, mechanical and electrical properties.

Therefore, tissue can be engineered by employing these nanostructures for enhanced cell adhesion, growth and differentiation. As the range of tissues being proposed for engineering increases, there is also a proportional increase in demand for new scaffold properties.

Nanotechnology in Medical Imaging

Nanotechnology is currently being applied to innovative methods of medical imaging. The development of imaging at the nanoscale has the ability to enhance the field of medicine by providing more detailed images of cellular processes. Current methods of medical imaging are being adapted to increase their potential at the nanoscale as well as being used as contrast agents for tracking injected nanoparticles in the body.

Research is currently underway in applying the technology to stem cell transplants and for the diagnostic imaging of early stage diseases.

A Two-In-One Nanosystem to Combat Cancer and Drug Resistance

In an effort to combat both cancer cell proliferation and MDR, a recent study conducted by researchers from the National Health Research Institutes of Taiwan and the National Science Council of Taiwan have developed a nanosystem capable of addressing both challenges in the field of cancer therapy.

The Future of Nursing

Nursing is unique among the health care professions in the United States in that it has multiple educational pathways leading to an entry-level license to practice. Nursing students are able to pursue three different educational pathways to become registered nurses (RNs): the bachelor’s of science in nursing (BSN), the associate’s degree in nursing (ADN), and the diploma in nursing. More recently, an accelerated, second-degree bachelor’s program for students who possess a baccalaureate degree in another field also has become a popular option.

Nanotechnology in Cancer Therapy

In therapy, nanotechnology to kill cancer cells is at the forefront of both targeted drug delivery and intrinsic therapies. For instance, nanoparticles can be used as tumor-destroying hyperthermia agents that are injected into the tumor and then be activated to produce heat and destroy cancer cells locally either by magnetic fields, X-Rays or light.

The Role of Nanotechnology in Plant Life

Flowers contain specific pigments within their petals that absorb ultraviolet (UV) light to create the intricate patterns and colors that make up their design. While humans are able to visualize these vibrant colors, bees that look to these plants for pollination are capable of recognizing different colors and pigments to the same flower that is invisible to the naked eye.

Nanotechnology in the Paint Industry

As construction and industry grow, it is expected that the application of antimicrobial, antifungal and antibacterial biocides will continue to rise as well. Biocides in paint allow for the prevention of the unwanted growth of fungus, algae and bacteria that can be extremely destructive to painted surfaces.

Modern Agri-tech

Agricultural biotechnology, otherwise called Agri-tech, is a zone of agricultural science including the utilization of scientific tools and methods, including genetic engineering, molecular markers, molecular diagnostics, immunizations, and tissue culture, to alter living organisms.

Present day agricultural biotechnology incorporates a scope of tools that researchers/scientists utilize to comprehend and control genetic make-up of life forms for use in the generation or processing of agricultural products. />

Ways to Prevent Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects millions of people worldwide. Uncontrolled cases can cause blindness, kidney failure, heart disease and other serious conditions.
Before diabetes is diagnosed, there is a period where blood sugar levels are high but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. This is known as prediabetes.
It's estimated that up to 70% of people with prediabetes go on to develop type 2 diabetes. Fortunately, progressing from prediabetes to diabetes isn't inevitable.
