Israeli and US scientists partner to make progress with nano-particles

Nonotechnology is spacing its own in technology and science research,
Participants in a research partnership between the Haifa Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and US research organization The Scripps Institute have announced progress in the development of new nano-particles with multiple medicinal and technological uses. Their report, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Scienceslast week, suggests that molecules modeled upon the spherical forms of viruses, known as 'capsids,' are ideally suited for use in pinpointed drug delivery, gene therapy, and nano-computing. The team, led by Technion chemist Ehud Keinan, conducted computer simulations of capsid formation processes, concluding that the natural structures can be artificially reproduced through lab-based chemical engineering
