2011 began on a good note, literally, for Terry Henderson, Ph.D., a member of the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) workforce. He received notice on January 3 that a paper he co-authored was accepted for publication in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS). The paper will likely be published in a spring edition of the journal.
The article is entitled “The Assembly State between Magnetic Nanosensors and their Targets Orchestrates their Magnetic Relaxation Response.” It reports the discovery of a new, mechanistically unique iron oxide nanoparticle-target interaction that can potentially be incorporated into new clinical and field detection applications.
“This work is relevant to ECBC’s mission for research into new and innovative approaches for the detection of threat CB materials,” said Jude Height of ECBC’s Biophysical Chemistry Branch.
According to its website, JACS was founded in 1879 and “is the flagship journal of the American Chemical Society and the preeminent journal in the field."
