  • Chemical Air Pollution in the Clinical Research Environment

    There has been a revolution in awareness of chemical air pollution in research laboratories. I could tell you several 'horror stories' of casual exposure to mercury vapour, benzene and chromic acid (the ultimate glassware cleaning agent) among innocent biomedical PhD students (including myself) in the 1970s. But researchers in hospitals, and other laboratories can never afford to be complacent ...

  • Multifunctional nanoparticles: from the detection of biomolecules to the therapy

    The intense research activities devoted to nanotechnology led to the development of a wide variety of multifunctional nanoparticles. Besides their small size which opens the route to the exploration of living matter at the subcellular scale, the properties of these particles can be accurately tuned by varying the composition, the size, the shape and the chemical composition of the surface. Some ...

  • Being a member of the club: the transnational (self-)governance of networks of biobanks

    Biobanks have become one of the core resources for biomedical research. At the same time, a number of risks associated with processing and storing of biological material and corresponding data have been diagnosed. This paper focuses on how institutionalised transnational networks of biobanks generate practical answers to some of these risks. Drawing upon three case studies – GenomEUtwin, ...
