Nano2Life announces science writing competition winners

Abstract:
Chris Spegel from the University of Lund, in Sweden, won first prize with his description of Parkinson's disease. His article, Micro and nanotechnology - assisting in the battle against Parkinson's disease, begins by outlining the development of techniques to monitor the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine from single cells, with the aim of producing a miniaturised test station. This station measures the effect of pharmaceuticals on the cell's ability to respond to its micro-environment. Small electrodes are manufactured on microchips using nano- and micro-technology to detect dopamine through oxidation. Nano- and micro-technological inventions such as these will revolutionise the way information is gathered and help improve the lives of Parkinson patients and their carers.
