Researchers figure out why gold nanoparticles can penetrate cell walls
Cells are very good at protecting their precious contents—and as a result, it's very difficult to penetrate their membrane walls to deliver drugs, nutrients or biosensors without damaging or destroying the cell. One effective ...
