What you have just read is true. In fact, a recent study conducted by the University of Missouri suggests that some genes may predispose to laziness and this might justify the fact that approximately 97% of American adults get less than 30 minutes of exercise a day, which should be the minimum amount to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The study was carried out by Professor Frank Booth and Michael Roberts, Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Missouri University College of Veterinary Med
3D printers slowly became quite common devices in comparison with the past and can now be employed for a variety of applications. Due to their biocompatibility and applicability in a huge number of fields hydrogels are perfect candidates for 3D inks to produce organs that mimic the structure of the human ones. Although it sounds like science fiction, this is now reality, as confirmed by Fu and his group, who demonstrated the employability of 3D printed hydrogels with optimise
These tridimensional particles are gold nanoparticles, a specific type of nanoparticles which is widely employed for biomedical applications and especially in diagnostics. These little spheres have a diameter around 300 nm and they appear as little cubes under the microscope. Functionalised gold nanoparticles have been studied as biosensors, for cancer treatment, drug delivery, immuno assays, optical bioimaging and much more!

Visit our new blog! We hope you will enjoy it! "Is it Art or Science?" is a page about scientific images that look like art pieces. It shows how science can be an art and how art can exploit science to obtain masterpieces! Who said that science cannot be creative? Have a look at the images and try to guess what they are....You can find some of them in everyday life even if you don't know it!
This element is a highly radioactive metal, which was created in 1994 in Germany. This element could be only found after years and years of study and presents 15 isotopes. To find out more about this interesting element, click here.
