The future of #therapeutics is potent biological drugs, many of which have #delivery challenges with respect to how much drug needs to be delivered to exactly where in the body, while minimizing #side_effects.
According to the Annual Report 2018 of #GRAPHENE_FLAGSHIP, the achievements are 145 partners, 31 partnering projects, 46 launched products, 9 spin-off companies, 25 granted patents, and 80+ promising application areas analyzed.
#InnoMatLife - founded by the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment - is a joint research project investigating the #health and environmental risk of novel materials. The project considers the full material life cycle, from synthesis to disposal.
Leading technology candidates in the area of #coating in #NASA_roadmap 2035 are Biological Fouling Resistant Surfaces, Microbial Mitigation Surfaces, Anti-Icing Surfaces, and Tailored Thermal Emittance.
As part of a $218 million investment in the emerging field of #quantum_information science (QIS), the #DOE Office of Basic Energy Sciences announced seven awards totaling $30 million over three years to develop QIS infrastructure and research.
Main research areas of #Strategic_Plan of the #Egyptian_Nanotech_Center are graphene transparent electrode, computational modeling and simulation, thin-film silicon photovoltaics, and nano-biotechnology.
#Highways_England is looking to avert deterioration in roads by investigating the use of #graphene in surfaces. Adding graphene into maintenance operations has the potential to extend asset life and make the network perform at an industry-changing level.
