Tiny science, big advances

Abstract:
At Ohio State, researchers have built nanoscaffolding on which to grow human tissue, developed a process to squeeze DNA down to a size that might be usable for gene therapy, found that nanoparticles injected in animals might help detect cancer early and begun to develop new materials to gather solar energy.

Epstein's former postdoctoral student Nan-Rong Chiou came up with a process that grows plastic nanofibers -- about one-500th of the width of human hair -- in a uniform pattern.

"Nobody realized you could do that," said Ric Kaner, a professor of inorganic chemistry, materials science and engineering at UCLA and a director of the California NanoSystems Institute.
