Nanorobotics for Health

The Sydney Nano Grand Challenges are aimed at discovering ground-breaking solutions to the world’s greatest challenges that are of social, economic and scientific significance. Bringing together researchers from across the University, the multidisciplinary Grand Challenge initiative will be enabled by advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology. More information about these challenges is available at: https://sydney.edu.au/nano/grand-challenges.html

Nanorobots & DNA Origami — Dr Shelley Wickham

Most drugs work by flooding the body with a particular molecule, in the hope that they will do their work where they’re most needed, and not damage the rest of the body along the way. What if you could design a programmable, nano-sized robot that could detect where it is and whether it’s safe to […]

The World's Smallest Robots: Rise of the Nanomachines

This week Reactions takes a look at some byte-size science. Nanomachines have some very tiny chemistry at play with some big results. Nanomachines – including nano-sized motors, rockets and even cars – are many orders of magnitude smaller than a human cell, but they have huge promise. In the future, they could deliver drugs anywhere […]
