Iran, UK to hold linked workshop on water management

As part of the British Council Researcher Links scheme, Imperial College London plans to hold workshop for participants from the UK and Iran. The workshop will be held at the Centre for Environmental Policy of Imperial College London, on 24-28 January 2016 and will be led by distinguished academics from both countries. This event seeks to bring together 20-25 early career scholars and experienced researchers from the UK

Nano-scaffolds made for converting stem cells into cells

According to Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC), Iranian researchers produced laboratorial samples of scaffolds made of nanofibers which have been designed to produce effective cells from stem cells to cure diseases, including diabetes and liver diseases. Treatment of malfunctioning organs such as insulin producing cells in the treatment of diabetes is one of the unsolved mysteries in the field of medicine. In many cases, organ

Second autologous transplant for aplastic anemia successful

MD Gholamreza Bahoush, a hematologist-oncologist told reporters that the umbilical cord blood transplant to treat aplastic anemia had been carried out only once in the world; “Aplastic Anemia is a failure in bone where it does not produce enough number of blood cells; in normal anemia, the number of red blood cells is less than the normal level; however, in aplastic anemia, white blood cells and platelets are also low,” said he, “autologous

Iran Aviation Summit 2016 kicks off in Tehran

Iran Aviation Summit which is currently taking place in Tehran on 24-25 January 2016, is the first major international aviation summit to be held in Iran in almost 40 years and is provided with the full backing of Iran’s aviation authorities and industry leaders. Following the historic nuclear agreement between Iran and the 5+1 group of countries in July 2015, Iran’s civil aviation sector, and its tourism industry,

Nanostructures boost efficiency of LEDs

Carrying out studies on the production and application of nanostructure semiconductors has currently become popular among the researchers. Cadmium sulfide nanostructures are very good for the sorption of visible lights, and they are the best option for the production of solar cells. According to Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC), these nanostructures also have applications in the production of LEDs, optical electronic devices

Iran produces nano-coatings to protect aircraft bodies

According to Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC), Iranian researchers have produced special nanostructured coatings that can be used in aircraft bodies to protect them against heat. The advantage of these coatings over normal coatings is their ultra light weight. The research has been carried out at the laboratorial scale and the results have applications in aerospace systems and sustainable energies. Coatings were synthesized

Contract ready for 2 power plants construction with China

Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, made the remarks on Tuesday among reporters adding, “the implementation of the nuclear agreement has improved the condition for cooperation in a way that some European and Asian countries such as China, Japan and South Korea have voiced their readiness to participate in our nuclear projects.” According to Salehi, the construction of two 1000 MW power plants worth

Antibacterial nanocomposites designed for food packaging

According to Iran Technology Initiative Council (INIC), Iranian researchers produced antibacterial nanocomposite samples that have applications in foodstuff packaging that increase durability of the foodstuff without using preservatives. Nanocomposite synthesized in this research is a combination of copper nanoparticles and polymers used in packaging industry. Copper is an essential element for cellular metabolism, and one of the
