Lighting the way to selective membrane imaging

Researchers at Kanazawa University monitored the emission of blue-green light from water-soluble tetraphenylethene molecules adsorbed at a phospholipid-adsorbed liquid-liquid interface made to resemble a biomembrane. They ...

Researchers plan DNA-based nanorobot for cancer diagnostics

A group of researchers from ITMO University has come up with the concept of a new drug against cancer: a nanorobot made of DNA fragments, which can potentially be used not only to destroy cancer cells, but also to locate ...

Nanocontainers for targeted drug delivery

RUDN University bioengineers have created magnetic nanocontainers for smart delivery of drugs to the desired organs or tissues, which reduces the risk of side effects. An experiment on mice determined that the nanocontainers ...

Cutting nanoparticles down to size

A new technique in chemistry could pave the way for producing uniform nanoparticles for use in drug delivery systems.

Fluorescent probes offer fuller view of drug delivery in cells

Selecting the most effective molecules for drug delivery is often a trial-and-error process, but Cornell engineers are providing some precision thanks to a technique that reveals the performance of those molecules inside ...
