Therefore, PANA project focuses on developing theranostic nanostructures that specifically recognize very-early molecular markers of AD, and can be detected by means of non-invasive imaging methodologies (MRI and/or PET, which are already common techniques accessible in most hospitals) and eventually provide a therapeutic action if needed.To achieve this goal, we propose a unique consortium which combines neuroscientists, nanotechnologists, molecular imaging experts, clinicians and Small/Medium/Large Enterprises in an effort to use smart nanoparticles engineered with multifunctional biomaterial to provide new very-early diagnostic tools for AD, a vital medical/social problem in EU.

Nevertheless, active collaboration among researchers and nanotechnologists can provide strong progress to achieve clinical revolution in the world of cancer.
The short term strategy of Malaysia is geared towards identifying researchers in various areas of nanotechnology with specific expertise; upgrading and equipping nanotechnology laboratories with state-of-the-art facilities; and to prepare a comprehensive human resource development programme for producing nanotechnologists. MOSTI is now entrusted to spearhead the planning and development of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).
"Put that together with the engineering minds and computer sciences and kinesiologists and nanotechnologists. Now these industrial companies have access to that kind of brain power, and you say, 'Well, we'd like to do a clinical trial.
This original review is hence intended to introduce interested nanotechnologists and advanced polymer scientists to the electrofluidodynamic technology with the particular emphasis, for the first time, on gathering its use as an advanced and high-performance platform to develop bioactive materials.
Nanotechnologists at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta have developed origamis built on this basic structure that could take advantage of triboelectricity to eventually power electronics in a cheap, lightweight, environmentally friendly way (Yang et al., 2015).
You're some of the nation's most innovative and inventive physicists, chemists, and geneticists; nanotechnologists, molecular biologists, data scientists, computer scientists, neuroscientists; experts in manufacturing, in cyber, in satellites, and in space, and I could go on.
In his opening speech, he said that clothes in future will be embedded with tiny E-Textiles (already existing) that can monitor our health, project videos, make phone calls, change colors at push of a button, and connect to internet possibilities are endless'.Nano-cellulose, stronger than steel, is being used to make bullet proof jackets by nanotechnologists. Similarly, nano-filters purify water, nano-medicines are far more effective, nano-electronics for minicomputers and bucky-balls are set to appear soon, he said.
Media reporting of nanotechnology developments in these emerging hotspots has been sparse, but is vital not just to nanotechnologists aiming to promote acceptance and contain exaggerated messages of risk, but also to the broader scientific community wishing to influence the messages that reach the public.
In this 31 chapter volume, editor Henini (physics and astronomy, University of Nottingham, United Kingdom) brings together a diverse set of physicists, electrical and mechanical engineers, and nanotechnologists to cover many of today's applications.
And as the uses for nanotechnology rapidly expand, so does the need for skilled nanotechnologists. By 2015, the nanotech industry will need six million workers worldwide in a range of fields, including biotechnology, food science, forensics, medicine and pharmaceuticals, military and national security and sporting goods.
