Sensing the nanoscale with visible light

A general rule in optics is that light is insensitive to features which are much smaller than the optical wavelength. However, a new experiment shows that even features that are more than 100 times smaller than the wavelength can still be sensed by light.

Dual-action cancer nanomedicine therapy

Scientists have fabricated antibody-coated porous silicon nanoparticles that can actively target cells through binding to specific cell-surface receptors. These nanoparticles were demonstrated to selectively deliver multiple therapeutics to human B cells in vitro.

Deploying therapeutic nano-payloads to cells

Researchers create a huge variety of programmed three-dimensional shapes out of single strands of synthetic DNA, a process known as DNA origami. These nanoparticles may ultimately be deployed as structural scaffolds to deliver vaccines, drugs, or even gene-editing tools such as CRISPR-Cas9 to specific parts of the body, he says.
