Light-Carved ‘Nano-Volcanoes’ Could Help With New Drug Delivery Technologies
2013-06-13 14:37:12

North Carolina State University Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a method for creating “nano-volcanoes” by shining various colors of light through a nanoscale “crystal ball” made of a synthetic polymer. These nano-volcanoes can store precise amounts of other materials and hold promise for new drug-delivery technologies. The researchers create the nano-volcanoes by placing spherical, transparent polymer nanoparticles directly onto...

Cannibalistic Tadpoles Key To Understanding Digestive Evolution
2013-05-08 16:01:09

North Carolina State University A carnivorous, cannibalistic tadpole may play a role in understanding the evolution and development of digestive organs, according to research from North Carolina State University. These findings may also shed light on universal rules of organ development that could lead to better diagnosis and prevention of intestinal birth defects. NC State developmental biologist Nanette Nascone-Yoder, graduate student Stephanie Bloom and postdoc Cris Ledon-Rettig...

X-ray Approach To Track Surgical Devices And Minimize Radiation Exposure Devised By Researchers
2013-04-16 10:35:10

North Carolina State University Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) have developed a new tool to help surgeons use X-rays to track devices used in “minimally invasive” surgical procedures while also limiting the patient´s exposure to radiation from the X-rays. Many surgical procedures now use long, thin devices — such as “steerable needles” — that can be inserted into a...

Invasive Kudzu Bugs May Pose Greater Threat Than Previously Thought According To New Research
2013-04-15 15:02:20

North Carolina State University The invasive kudzu bug has the potential to be a major agricultural pest, causing significant damage to economically important soybean crops. Conventional wisdom has held that the insect pests will be limited to areas in the southern United States, but new research from North Carolina State University shows that they may be able to expand into other parts of the country. Kudzu bugs (Megacopta cribraria) are native to Asia, and were first detected in the...
