RNAi : RNA Interference : Nanotechnology and RNA-Loaded Nanoparticles for the Fight Against Cancer : Potential for New and Potent Medicines

This is a blockbuster development in medical research.

Alla Katsnelson writes at Technology Review in RNA-Loaded Nanoparticles Fight Cancer that research just posted in Nature magazine shows early clinical success in targeting cancer cells and silencing target genes, so-called "gene silencing", via RNA Interference (RNAi), as Katsnelson writes:
"a powerful approach to creating new and potent medicines. "

Skin Deep - Experts Question Early Use of Nanotechnology in Products - NYTimes.com:
by Natasha Singer at NYTimes.com
"[S]ome doctors, scientists and consumer advocates are concerned that many industries are adopting nanotechnology ahead of studies that would establish whether regular ingestion, inhalation or dermal penetration of these particles constitute a health or environmental hazard. Personal care products are simply the lowest hanging fruit."

No Nano? Public Uninformed about Nanotechnology

Outreach Going Wrong? :The Scientist [2010-01-01]
by Elizabeth A. Corley and Dietram A. Scheufele
"When we talk nano to the public, we are leaving behind key audiences.

Scholars, policy-makers, and outreach specialists in the nanotechnology community may be struggling with toxicological data and regulatory frameworks, but they seem to be able to agree on one thing: The public is unaware of the new technology and uninformed about the science behind it."

Breakthrough in developing super-material graphene

Breakthrough in developing super-material graphene

"Graphene is a relatively new form of carbon made up of a single layer of atoms arranged in a honeycomb shaped lattice. Despite being one atom thick and chemically simple, graphene's is extremely strong and highly conductive, making it ideal for high-speed electronics, photonics and beyond.

Graphene is a strong candidate to replace semiconductor chips. Moore's Law observes that the density of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles every two years, but silicon and other existing transistor materials are thought to be close to the minimum size where they can remain effective. Graphene transistors can potentially run at faster speeds and cope with higher temperatures. Graphene could be the solution to ensuring computing technology to continue to grow in power whilst shrinking in size, extending the life of Moore's law by many years."
