  • Medical nanoparticles: local treatment of lung cancer

    5 Mar 2015 | 5:11 am
    Nanoparticles can function as carriers for medicines to combat lung cancer, scientists say, after developing nanocarriers that site-selectively release medicines/drugs at the tumor site in human and mouse lungs. The scientists report that this approach led to a significant increase in the effectiveness of current cancer medicines in lung tumor tissue.
  • Energy-generating cloth could replace batteries in wearable devices

    4 Mar 2015 | 8:03 am
    From light-up shoes to smart watches, wearable electronics are gaining traction among consumers, but these gadgets' versatility is still held back by the stiff, short-lived batteries that are required. These limitations, however, could soon be overcome. Scientists report the first durable, flexible cloth that harnesses human motion to generate energy. It can also self-charge batteries or supercapacitors without an external power source and make new commercial and medical applications possible.

  • Professor takes madness out of the month

    5 Mar 2015 | 11:23 am
    With the NCAA Men's and Women's Basketballl Tournaments tipping off soon, brackets and bubble-busters are reaching a fever pitch. Dr. Jay Coleman, the Richard deRaismes Kip Professor of Operations Management and Quantitative Methods in the Coggin College of Business at the University of North Florida, and self-professed sports fanatic is trying to take some of the madness out of the month with his "Dance Card" Method for determining NCAA March Madness brackets, also known as "bracketology."
  • Perfect NCAA bracket? Near impossible, mathematician says

    5 Mar 2015 | 11:20 am
    The odds of picking a perfect bracket for the NCAA men's basketball March Madness championship tournament are a staggering less than one in 9.2 quintillion (that's 9,223,372,036,854,775,808), according to Jeff Bergen, mathematics professor at DePaul University.
  • New detector sniffs out origins of methane

    5 Mar 2015 | 11:00 am
    Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, second only to carbon dioxide in its capacity to trap heat in Earth's atmosphere for a long time. The gas can originate from lakes and swamps, natural-gas pipelines, deep-sea vents, and livestock. Understanding the sources of methane, and how the gas is formed, could give scientists a better understanding of its role in warming the planet.
  • Transport molecule forms a protective structure to guide proteins to cell membrane

    5 Mar 2015 | 11:00 am
    The molecular complex that guides an important class of proteins to correct locations in cell membranes does so by forming a dimeric structure with a protective pocket, report scientists from the University of Chicago in Science on Mar. 5. This structure shields tail-anchored membrane proteins - which have roles in a wide variety of cellular functions from neurotransmitter release to insulin production - from harmful aggregation or misfolding as they move through the inner environment of a cell. The findings clarify the mechanism behind a fundamental biological process.

    Credit: Virginia Commonwealth University News If nanotechnologists were to vote on their favorite atom, the winner would, I would guess, be carbon. Not only do diamond-like structures figure prominently in theoretical proposals for high throughput atomically precise manufacturing, not only does carbon bind in a wondrous variety of ways with itself and other atoms to form the molecules that underlie life and present day biomimetic nanotechnology, but a variety of allotropes of carbon exhibit a range of interesting properties that make possible a number of current day nanotechnologies.

  • Does radical innovation best get done by big firms or little ones?

    Richard Jones
    5 Mar 2015 | 12:56 am
    A recent blogpost by the economist Diane Coyle quoted JK Galbraith as saying in 1952: “The modern industry of a few large firms is an excellent instrument for inducing technical change. It is admirably equipped for financing technical development and for putting it into use. The competition of the competitive world, by contrast, almost completely precludes technical development.” Coyle describes this as “complete nonsense” -“ big firms tend to do incremental innovation, while radical innovation tends to come from small entrants.” This is certainly conventional wisdom…
  • Growth, technological innovation, and the British productivity crisis

    Richard Jones
    28 Jan 2015 | 2:38 pm
    The biggest current issue in the UK’s economic situation is the continuing slump in productivity. It’s this poor productivity performance that underlies slow or no real wage growth, and that also contributes to disappointing government revenues and consequent slow progress reducing the government deficit. Yet the causes of this poor productivity performance are barely discussed, let alone understood. In the long-term, productivity growth is associated with innovation and technological progress – have we stopped being able to innovate? The ONS has recently released a set of…

There’s a lot to be said about this strategy, but here I want to discuss just one aspect – the document’s extended references to the Haldane Principle. This principle is widely believed to define, in UK science policy, a certain separation between politics and science, taking detailed decisions about what science to fund out of the hands of politicians and entrusting them to experts in the Research…

    This long blogpost is based on a lecture I gave at UCL a couple of weeks ago, for which you can download the overheads here. It’s a bit of a rough cut but I wanted to write it down while it was fresh in my mind. People talk about innovation now in two, contradictory, ways. The prevailing view is that innovation is accelerating. In everyday life, the speed with which our electronic gadgets become outdated seems to provide supporting evidence for this view, which, taken to the extreme, leads to the view of Kurzweil and his followers that we are approaching a technological singularity.
