Darwin endures, despite disparagement

Posted on 12. April, 2018.

Evolution lies at the heart of the life sciences, and Charles Darwin is a towering historical figure within evolutionary science. One testimony to his lasting influence is that declaring Darwin to have been wrong all along remains a provocative way to command attention.

Small Material, Big Impact: European Repository of Reference Nanomaterials will improve safety assessment

Posted on 15. February, 2011.

The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has just launched the first European repository of nanomaterials with a representative range of 25 different types of reference nanomaterials. This will support safety assessment to ensure consumer protection and confidence in many innovative applications and products. Nanotechnology is one of today's most promising technological developments. By enabling a harmonised risk assessment the repository can contribute to the success of nanotechnology and its products. Standardised methodologies and materials are necessary to obtain worldwide comparable test results and to provide reliable data for policy and regulatory decision making.

The Overlooked Link Between Non-Virus Microbes and Cancer...

Posted on 12. November, 2010.

In the next issue of Science Progress, Milton Wainwright presents a review on "The overlooked link between non-virus microbes and cancer". What if the cause of cancer had been known and ignored for more than a century? What is all the suffering and deaths over this period resulting from the "big C" could have been prevented, or at least reduced by the acceptance of a simple theory?

State of the Art of Photovoltaic Technologies

Posted on 28. September, 2010.

Our sun is the only sustainable energy source large enough to supply carbon-neutral energy to meet humanity’s entire energy demand. However, there is a large gap between Europe’s solar energy use (less than 1% of the total) and the enormous, untapped potential of the sun. There could be several reasons listed why it is so – social, political, technological – but the fundamental reason is insufficient efficiency of sunlight-to-energy conversion devices manufactured from inexpensive materials thus preventing large scale uptake. Along with thermal and photoelectrochemical sunlight-to-energy conversion, photovoltaics – an approach of converting sunlight directly into electricity – is probably most mature for contributing to the increasing renewable energy use.
