By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Laboratory Assessments Board, Panel on Materials Science and Engineering

The venture of the producing Engineering Laboratory (MEL) of the nationwide Institute of criteria and expertise (NIST) is to advertise innovation and the competitiveness of U.S. production via size technological know-how, size providers, and important technical contributions to criteria. The MEL is equipped in 5 divisions: clever platforms, production Metrology, production platforms Integration, Precision Engineering, and Fabrication expertise. A panel of specialists appointed through the nationwide learn Council (NRC) assessed the 1st 4 divisions. total, this ebook reveals that the 4 person divisions are acting to the simplest in their skill, given to be had assets. in lots of parts in all 4 divisions, the functions and the paintings being played are top-of-the-line within the field.However, decreased investment and different elements akin to hassle in hiring everlasting employees are restricting (and tend to more and more restrict) the measure to which MEL courses can in achieving their pursuits and are threatening the long run impression of those courses.

IL7

Interleukin 7 (IL-7) used to be came across in 1988 as an element that promotes the expansion of murine В telephone precursors. IL-7 is a single-chain protein of 25kDa produced predominantly via epithelial cells, in particular keratino-cytes and thymic epithelial cells. It performs a necessary, nonredundant position within the improvement of T and В cells within the mouse and of T cells in people.

Opportunities exist for exploring alternative cost structures for the calibration and measurement services—for example, machine charges, consumables charges, service center charges, and activity-based cost accounting. 21 Programs Funded Under the America COMPETES Act The Supply Chain Integration and Bio-Imaging projects in the Manufacturing Systems Integration Division have gained incremental funding under the America COMPETES Act of 2007. The funding has been used to bolster the more strategic segments of the semantic mediation work in supply chain.

Benchmarking is performed currently for other NMIs, but this activity should be expanded to include industry in order to capture significant cutting-edge capabilities. • Opportunities exist for exploring alternative cost structures for the calibration and measurement services—for example, machine charges, consumables charges, service center charges, and activity-based cost accounting. 21 Programs Funded Under the America COMPETES Act The Supply Chain Integration and Bio-Imaging projects in the Manufacturing Systems Integration Division have gained incremental funding under the America COMPETES Act of 2007.

This will be very useful in the context of directing future work on standards and the testing of standards. The Precision Engineering Division received $87,000 to support bionanoparticle research, in which researchers are imaging, locating, and tracking nanoparticles in cancer cells for drug delivery applications. It is too early in the funding cycle to assess the progress of this work, but the effort demonstrates initiative for applying sensing, measurements, and fabrication technology to this very important biomedical need.
