Why: Also access to facilities and material as the issue was during the period of Phase I of the Collaborative where access to Stem Cell lines were legislatively prohibited in the USA. Inclusive to this they were looking to increase the research outputs of the universities involved within Phase I, knew that putting smart people in the same room that they would identify synergies between themselves and generate outputs in Research and publications.

Why: Looking at Boston, but were looking to gain inward investment into the UK through research building on access to people, research, and facilities. The attitude of openness within Texas was the weight that tipped in Texas’s favour versus Boston.

Looking at this opportunity of being in this prestigious research collaboration is very impactful to not only Swansea but to Wales in general in regards to speeding up innovation in the medical and health sector. Wales being a small country it is easy to meet with the decision makers to be able to facilitate opportunities. Swansea has been able to increase the research funds of the Medical and Engineering schools due to this collaboration inclusive to this they have brought not only World Class Medical and Engineering Science and Experts to Wales but taken the best in Wales to Texas. Opportunities like this to create a streamlined framework of capturing the benefits while capitalising on the opportunities should not be missed. Flexibility and accessibility is key, opportunities in gaining knowledge and innovation to better the Healthcare offering in Wales.

The opportunity of bringing the NHS Clinical Trials Infrastructure to the Collaborative is a key driver for the NHS in building new and novel ways of delivering healthcare in Wales. By tying into the TX/UK Collaborative we gain access to one of the World leading cancer research centers and are able to bring to bear the value of phase II trials for research in Texas. Building throughput of new products and processes will allow the Welsh NHS to maximise on its strategic investments with Universities, especially Swansea University. Inclusive to this is the access to some of the best medical minds in the world; by bringing them together we can drive knowledge development in the NHS with our Clinical Researchers for Translational outputs.

A small fraction of the world’s research can take place in Wales - international collaborations will increase the influence and reputation of Wales in research and development. Wales can benefit from research carried out elsewhere by forming collaborations with leading researchers in other parts of the world, especially the USA

Building international collaborations provides access to the world’s best science, scientists and facilities. Prime Minister Brown’s speech, “Enlarging the Anglosphere”, delivered in the US on April 16, 2008 contained six proposals, four of which are currently fostered by the Collaborative: enhancing student and faculty exchanges, increasing cooperation on enterprise, strengthening cooperation in health research and fostering collaboration in other areas of research.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
