German scientists kill cancer cells with nano-sized copper compounds

Long Read

A team of German scientists have succeeded in killing tumour cells in mice using nano-sized copper compounds together with immunotherapy. Best of all, after the therapy, the cancer did not return. The team - made up from scientists from KU Leuven, the University of Bremen, the Leibniz Institute...

Nanomachines engineered to drill into cancer cells killing them in just 60 seconds

Long Read

An international team, including bio-engineers from Durham University, have used motorised molecules driven by light to drill holes in the membranes of cancer cells - killing them. The new technique could mean new therapeutic methods to bring medicines directly into the cells or allow doctors to target and...

Tiny crystals & nanowires join forces to split water

Quick Read

Scientists are working on a new technology which uses nanowires and crystals to split water into its oxygen and hydrogen, potentially revolutionising the energy industry. The technique, proposed by a team of scientists at the University at Buffalo, could radically alter our approach to clean energy. The technology,...
