Enlisting nanoparticles in the fight against superbugs
University of Melbourne bio-engineers have developed a material made from nanoparticles that can fight antibiotic-resistant superbugs like Golden Staph.
Honey I shrunk the particles!
The University of Melbourne's Matt Faria needed an accessible way to test nanoparticle crystal formation in zero-gravity. So he skydived in the name of science.
Skydiving for science
A group of scientists have skydived to show that low gravity affects crystal growth in nanoparticles, telling us more about designing new materials.
How a mathematical equation opened a new frontier in nanotechnology
Professor John Sader discovered a mathematical trick to simultaneously reveal both the shape and weight of nano-scale objects like proteins and viruses.
