Nanomedicine Explorer Kiosk

The Nanomedicine Explorer is an interactive, updateable multimedia kiosk and media package, that is also available as a component of the Nanomedicine Exhibition. Visitors can explore a variety of topics and specific research areas in cancer nanomedicine through vivid animations and video story-telling up close with a diverse group of researchers.

NOVA MAKING STUFF: Activity Guide

A Collection of materials science resources, activities and demonstrations developed in conjunction with NOVA MAKING STUFF PBS series. These outreach materials will enable educators and scientists to engage audiences in formal and informal settings and encourage appreciation and better understanding of our material world in the young and old alike.Invisibility cloaks.   Season 1: MAKING STUFF: Stronger, Smaller, Cleaner, Smarter. Season 2: MAKING MORE STUFF: Faster, Wilder, Colder, Safer.

Nanotechnology Part 1: Explore the Nanoscale and Part 2: Nanoproperties

Australian animated videos on nanoscience scale (Part 1) and properties (Part 2).

Underpinning an understanding of nanotechnology are two foundational aspects. First appreciating the nanoscale - how might we imagine one billionth of a meter? And second exploring novel nano properties such as conductivity, color and reactivity. This pair of animations explores both scale and properties.

Battling Cancer with Nanotechnology Video

"Battling Cancer with Nanotechnology" is a 6-minute video that shares the research of Mauro Ferrari, a leading pioneer in the field of cancer nanomedicine. A visionary optimist, Ferrari applied his mathematical physics and engineering skills to medicine and is determined to overcome every obstacle on the way to conquering cancer's cruel reign. Dr. Ferrari's research is one of several new nanomedicine-based approaches to cancer treatment that is explored in the Nanomedicine Explorer kiosk, website and DVD (also on nisenet.org).

Stealth Imaging with Iron Nanoparticles Video

"Stealth Imaging with Iron Nanoparticles" is an 8-minute video that tells the research story of Ralph Weissleder and Mukesh Harisinghani, who collaborated on the design of a clinical trial to determine if an injection of specially-designed iron-oxide nanoparticles could enhance a diagnostic image produced by an MRI machine to the extent that the spread of cancer could be accurately assessed.

At least in the case of prostate cancer, as Dr. Weissleder tells our producer in this story, “The results were stunning.”

Nanomedicine Explorer Website and DVD

The Nanomedicine Explorer is an interactive, bilingual, multimedia program and website. Visitors can explore a variety of research areas in cancer nanomedicine through vivid animations and video story-telling up close with a diverse group of researchers. Interactive features include games, polls, and options to dig deeper into the material. Fully bilingual English/Espanol. The multimedia package on DVD can also be loaded into any computer display or custom-built cabinet to augment existing health, medicine,and nanotechnology exhibits.
