Physical forces explain why some COVID variants are more virulent than others. While all the major SARS-CoV-2 variants have a higher binding affinity to human cells than the original strain, the binding of the Alpha variant is especially mechanically stable, making it spread so quickly.

Nanoscience (tacc.utexas.edu):
Scientists have created the world’s first working nanoscale electromotor: a turbine engineered from DNA that is powered by hydrodynamic flow inside a nanopore, a nanometer-sized hole in a membrane of solid-state silicon nitride

Nanoscience (news.wsu.edu):
Cannabis activates specific hunger neurons in the brain: mice exposed to vaporized cannabis triggered a set of cells in the hypothalamus when the rodents anticipated and consumed palatable food, a response not observed in unexposed mice

New Research Reveals How UV Light Inactivates Coronavirus Particles

Nanoscience (sciencedirect.com):
Modifying nanoscale TiO2 nanotubes (TNT) affects human gingival fibroblast cells (hGFs). Subtle surface change significantly improved the material's compatibility, suggesting promising applications for enhanced implant materials.

Nanoscience (newatlas.com):
Researchers have used human tracheal cells to create tiny biological robots that can move on their own and work together to encourage healing in damaged neurons without requiring genetic modifications.

Eye-safe laser technology to diagnose traumatic brain injury. The novel technology is expected to be developed into a hand-held device for use in the critical ‘golden hour’ after traumatic brain injury.

Nanoscience (sciencedirect.com):
Scientists improved the most widely used technology for producing single-walled carbon nanotube films — a promising material for solar cells, LEDs, flexible and transparent electronics, medical imaging, and more. They almost tripled carbon nanotuble yield without compromising quality.
