Research Inequality In Nanomedicine, Thomas Woodson Nov 2012

Research Inequality In Nanomedicine, Thomas Woodson

Thomas Woodson

The 10-90 gap is an idea in the healthcare literature that less than 10%of all research funding goes to solving health problems that are 90%of the global disease burden. This paper examines whether there is inequality in nanotechnology healthcare research (nanomedicine). To understand the inequality in nanomedicine, I conducted a bibliometric review of Web of Science and PubMed databases. Overall there is not large inequality in nanomedicine research. The bibliometric analysis shows that most nanomedicine research is done in high income countries, but their research portfolios extend beyond rich world diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes to ...


Effect Of Temperature On Surface Tension Of A Bubble And Hierarchical Ruptured Bubbles For Nanofiber Fabrication, Ji-Huan He Jan 2012

Effect Of Temperature On Surface Tension Of A Bubble And Hierarchical Ruptured Bubbles For Nanofiber Fabrication, Ji-Huan He

Ji-Huan He

Polymer bubbles can be used to fabrication of nanofibers using the bubble electrospinning. Temperature is one of the most effective parameters to control the spinning process. Suitable choice of inner and outer temperatures results in a minimal surface tension. A bubble under electronic field will be broken to form daughter bubble cascades, which can be used for nanofiber fabrication.
