Nanofibers instead of ordinary fibers, nanoparticles instead of ordinary particles, and nanolooms instead of plain old looms. It’s all about nanotechnology. Polish scientists—in a research project coordinated by the Textile Research Institute in the central city of £ód¼—have developed a range of special hi-tech textiles that have anti-allergic and antiviral properties, regulate their own temperature and clean themselves. These innovative textiles can be used to make window blinds, strollers for children, wheelchairs for disabled people, tents and radiation shields, says Ma³gorzata Cie¶lak, manager of the project. She adds that the new textiles are an especially good choice for specialized clothing, for example “clothes with bioactive properties useful in medicine, or protective clothing needed wherever there are biological risks or electromagnetic radiation.”
Want to eat your way out of disease instead of taking tons of drugs? Polish researchers have developed a new breed of bioactive foods that are designed to promote health and help patients with conditions such as obesity, anemia, hypertension and diabetes.
In another project focusing on healthy foods, Polish researchers found a way to enrich food with fatty acids of the omega-3 class, which help prevent cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases and have anti-cancer properties.
Textiles that regulate their own temperature, have anti-allergic and antiviral properties and clean themselves—these are the benefits of a research project conducted by Polish scientists and coordinated by the Textile Research Institute from the central city of £ód¼.
In another project focusing on innovative textiles, researchers from the £ód¼ University of Technology have developed special materials that do not get wet because they have a special hydrophobic layer.
Polish scientists are working on a drug that will combine in one capsule the positive effects of several medicines used by those who suffer from an abnormal level of lipids—chiefly cholesterol—in the blood.
A team of Polish scientists, doctors and pharmacists is working on a drug that could provide a new way to treat Alzheimer’s disease. The drug does not offer a cure, but is expected to significantly improve memory.
What is the simplest way to teach difficult aspects of physics and biology to young people? Nuclear physicist Krzysztof Wo¼niak and synthetic biologist Anna Olchowik have found a way: creating special computer games for this purpose.
The Polish Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Physical Chemistry in Warsaw is marking 60 years in existence.
Researchers at the Moratex Institute of Security Technology in the central city of £ód¼ have designed a mobile forensics laboratory that enables police to collect fingerprints more efficiently at the scene of a crime.
A Polish research consortium is designing a system of special nets to catch defunct satellites, rocket parts and other space junk that is orbiting the Earth in the wake of 50 years of space exploration.
