Future growth areas for drug delivery device industry

Report identifies opportunities and threats faced as markets change radically over the next 10 years

Environmental sampling: evaluating future

The importance of environmental monitoring and evaluation with food production environments

Dynamic pharma partnering for future mutual benefits

Changing market dynamics are forcing pharma companies to adopt more collaborative approaches. As Adam Sherlock shows, the result is a new wave of partnerships that go beyond just R&D.

The future of the electric car

The electric car is part of the almost immediate future, although certainly challenges first have to be met, such as the availability of good supply and recharging networks, and the development of more autonomous batteries.

Yoghurt's future as a functional food assured

Yoghurt consumption is increasingly seen as part of a healthy lifestyle by consumers. As a result manufacturers are finding it an ideal medium for delivering beneficial functional ingredients. Sean Ottewell reports.

Grant ensures a sustainable future for software

A sustained future for this valuable resource has now been assured thanks to a multi-million pound grant from Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, which will establish the UK's Software Sustainability Institute.

Seafarers' scourge provides hope for biofuel future

For centuries, seafarers were plagued by wood-eating gribble that destroyed their ships, and these creatures continue to wreak damage on wooden piers and docks in coastal communities.

The future of organic ornamental plants

Whether plants are grown for food or ornamental use, conventional agricultural production methods have the same environmental impact. Pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers can find their way into the air and groundwater, ultimately affecting the environment, wildlife, and communities.

Nanowires key to future transistors

A new generation of ultrasmall transistors and more powerful computer chips using semiconducting nanowires are closer to reality.

Future of vaccine development

Scientists have developed a new "adjuvant" that could allow the creation of important new vaccines, possibly become a universal vaccine carrier and help medical experts tackle many diseases more effectively.

Predicting the future of plant communities

A scientist discovered an algorithm that may be used to predict the future dynamics of plant communities, an increasingly interesting area of study as significant environmental changes.

Studying past flu pandemics for clues to future

Analysis of 14 global or regional influenza epidemics during the past 500 years reveals no consistent pattern of wave-like surges of disease prior to the major outbreaks, but does point to a great diversity of severity among those pandemics.

Robotics: Considering Future Human-Android Interactions

With knowledge of present day technology, the scientists predict that within 50 years androids will be able to speak in human-like voices, identify spoken words with precision, or answer questions from a body of textual information.

The future of agriculture

Dramatic price fluctuations, increasing demand, the food vs. fuel debate, and other events of the past year may have food producers wondering which way is up.

Shellfish face an uncertain future because of food safety

Overfishing and disease have decimated shellfish populations. Researchers have discovered another serious threat to these valuable filter feeders - rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide.

Future quantum computers

An unusual observation may lead to a new generation of Quantum computers that may render today's computer and credit card encryption technology obsolete.

Standardisation is the key to developing future solutions

The pharmaceutical industry is a very different animal compared with other industries, particularly when it comes to laboratory testing. In the case of chemical manufacturing, for example, each batch of product undergoes quality control testing and a record of these results has to be kept for a short time.

Assessing the future of non-invasive nasal drug delivery solutions

Pharmaceutical companies have recognised the advantages of nasal delivery and extended both their product development and the demands on devices to efficiently deliver substances that are potentially more potent and expensive. Chris Halling reports.

Enabling pharmacogenomics for future therapeutics

Edvin N Munk reports on the importance of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) to pharmaceutical industry and the work of The SNP Consortium made up by 13 leading pharmaceutical and information organisations.
