The fact that our immune systems capture and destroy nanoparticles and the drugs they carry has been a problem in the field of nanomedicine for some time. But, in the fight against cancer, researchers are now attempting to exploit this problem to their advantage.
Researchers at NTNU have found a way to make gold nanoparticles with a uniform size and shape, opening up the possibility of finding more effective photocatalysts
Teachers now face the extra challenge of designing exams that will prevent students from cheating their way to good grades with ChatGPT.
Assigning marks in Grade 7 can have negative effects. A new study shows that the practice can affect pupils’ academic performance and how they experience the transition to secondary school.
