Nanoparticles Hold Promise as Double-Edged Sword Against Genital Herpes

ZOTEN.jpg

An effective vaccine against the virus that causes genital herpes has evaded researchers for decades. But now, researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago working with scientists from Germany have shown that zinc-oxide nanoparticles shaped like jacks can prevent the virus from entering cells, and help natural immunity to develop.

Hu and Munday Win Young Investigator Award

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) Young Investigator Program (YIP) seeks to identify and support scientists and engineers who show exceptional promise in creative research. The program’s objectives are to attract outstanding faculty members to support the ONR’s research areas, which cover a wide range of science and technology areas, from robotics to solar cells. The ONR has supported Young Investigators through this program for 31 years, making it one of the oldest scientific research advancement programs in the U.S. The program remains highly competitive, with 47 awardees out of 280 applicants this year. The candidates are all faculty who have obtained tenure-track positions within the past five years, and their proposals were selected based on past performance, technical merit, potential scientific breakthrough, and long-term university commitment.

Quantum Dots Enhance Light-to-Current Conversion in Layered Metal Dichalcogenide Semiconductors

quantum-dots-hr.jpg

Scientists combined the excellent light-harvesting properties of quantum dots with the tunable electrical conductivity of a layered tin disulfide semiconductor to produce a hybrid material that exhibited enhanced light-harvesting and energy transfer properties -- both in laboratory tests and when incorporated into electronic devices. The research paves the way for using these materials in optoelectronic applications such as energy-harvesting photovoltaics, light sensors, and light emitting diodes (LEDs).
