Carbon Nanotubes (CNT) have attracted a huge interest in the research community to their extraordinary properties. However, the production methods, specially in the case of single walled CNT (SWNCT), also create a high number of [...]
The completion of whole human genome sequencing encourages the development of a powerful gene delivery technology for elucidating structure, regulation and function of genes and proteins in addition to the emerging biomedical applications, such as [...]

Filamentous phage, such as fd used in this study, are thread-shaped bacterial viruses. Their outer coat is a tube formed by thousands equal copies of the major coat protein pVIII (Figure 1, left). We constructed [...]
Ferrimagnetic glass-ceramics are potential candidates for magnetic induction hyperthermia, which is one form of inducing deep-regional hyperthermia, by using a magnetic field. The aim of this work is the preparation and characterization of innovative bioactive [...]
Natural biopolymers are widely used in the filed of drug and gene delivery. In this study, alginate nanoparticles were prepared using water-in-oil microemulsion as a template followed by calcium crosslinking of guluronic acid units of [...]
We have investigated the toxicity of nanomaterials to living cells at the cellular and molecular levels. Recently, nanomaterials have being rapidly developed and shown great potential for use in various bioapplications due to their unique [...]
Recently, hydroxyapatite/collagen composites have received much attention in the field of tissue reconstruction, because human bone is mainly composed of hydroxyapatite and collagen fibers. However, these composites cannot be synthesized without secondary treatments, therefore the [...]
Amelogenin self-assembly into nanospheres has been recognized as a key factor in controlling the oriented and elongated growth of carbonated apatite crystals during tooth enamel formation. We investigated the process of amelogenin self-assembly into higher [...]
Significant efforts are now being made for the development of non-viral gene-delivery techniques as alternatives to the viral vectors for basic research and clinical medicine. Despite existence of a wide variety of non-viral techniques particularly [...]
A new strategy of creating nucleic acid nanostructures is described. Our approach is based not on isotropic dsDNA (or RNA) molecules, but on these molecules fixed in spatial structure of their liquid-crystalline particles.The nanostructure formed [...]
The single molecule approach is potentially of great technological interest as a complementary means to obtain information about protein conformation or molecular interaction. The measurement for molecular interaction in single molecule level requires that the [...]
This paper proposes a novel technology to fabricate 3D nano pore structures in SU-8 resist, a widely employed resist in MEMS and Bio-chips. Controlling the evaporation rate in SU-8 fabrication process, regular porous structures with [...]
Self controlled magnetic hyperthermia at tumor sites requires magnetic particles with Curie temperature similar to that of the desired tumor temperature. Elevated temperature at the tumor site was reported to decrease the tumor resistivety to [...]
Nanomaterials substrates are suitable for functioning as cell scaffolds. Promotion of axonal growth and support for long distance regeneration are the two requirements in the various experimental strategies for spinal cord repair. Organic systems’ performance [...]
Biomagnetic technologies rely on the ability of biological substances to form supra-molecular structures when they are mixed with magnetic nanoparticles. In this report we will demonstrate how thin film growth technique combined with traditional mask-transfer [...]
Smart materials are required in devices in order to develop different functions referent to control and automation. The performance and applications of these materials have been growing in the last years and recently their development [...]
Preliminary data on in-vivo performance of nanothick bioceramic IBAD-coated metallic implants showed an increase in both osteoblastic activity and mechanical properties for bone surrounding these implants. The purpose of this study was to characterize a [...]
We prepared the magnetite core coated with nano-graded ZnS shell to display superparamagnetic and photoluminescent properties. By adsorbing the phosphorylcholine-ended thiol to stabilize the core-shell nanoparticles, the particles can be well-dispersed in aqueous buffer solution [...]
To increase the targeting potential, circulation time, and the flexibility of surface-attached biomedically-relevant ligands on gold nanoparticles, hetero-bifunctional poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG, MW 1,500) was synthesized having a thiol group on one terminus and a reactive [...]
Iron oxide nanoparticles (NPs) in the form of maghemite and magnetite have been used for targeted drug delivery, magnetic cell sorting, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents and immunoassays. Surface modification of these NPs is [...]
