Risk Governance of Nanotechnology KU Leuven
Engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) are covered by REACH/CLP regulations; the general opinion is that the risk assessment (RA) approach routinely used for conventional chemicals is also applicable to ENMs. However, as acknowledged by OECD and ECHA, the OECD and ISO Test Guidelines (TGs) and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) need to be verified and adapted to be applicable to ENMs. RiskGONE will support the standardization and validation ...
Putting DNA nanotechnology to work: the art of DNA origami and DNA-only cascades paving the way towards innovative concepts in biosensing KU Leuven
The ability to specifically detect extremely low concentrations of targets, preferably in a reproducible and fast manner, is crucial for the detection and therapy of many diseases. These major challenges in the biosensing field in part originate from incomplete understanding of:
- the interaction between target and receptor molecules
- how the signal is triggered
In this project, we hypothesize that by exploring ...

Temporally and spatially resolved multi-element information at the micro- and nano-scale: development of new analytical methods and their application to metallomics and nanotechnology Ghent University
To date, most ICP U+2013 mass spectrometers are equipped with a U+201Cscanning-typeU+201D mass analyzer (quadrupole filter, sector-field MS). In the case of short transient signals, this may restrict elemental analysis to a single-nuclide approach. Recently, a new type

Development and validation of promising integrated eHealth applications combined with nanotechnology for hospitalisation of heart failure patients at home Hasselt University
Cancer is one of the major causes of death in our society. The anti-cancer drugs currently used in chemotherapy produce several side effects and, although fatal for almost all cells in a tumor, a small percentage of cells appear to resist the treatment. Therefore, it is urgent to design new therapies that specifically target these cells while causing no harm to healthy tissue. The resistance to multiple drugs is linked to the presence of ...
