Featured paper 

A multidisciplinary team of 13 Brazilian scientists tested the efficiency of several functionalized nanomaterials for delivering genes of interest (gene delivery) to humans and rat cells, protecting the nucleic acid until destiny. The results were published on Nanoscale. See our story about the study.

Having a series of experimental evidences, a team of Brazilian scientists presented, in Applied Physics Letters, the newest member of the photovoltaic materials family: bismuth telluride. The finding opens possibilities for fundamental studies and for applications of the material. See our story.
