Liposome-hydrogel hybrids: No toil, no trouble for stronger bubbles

Researchers have developed a method to combine two substances that individually have generated interest for their potential biomedical applications: a phospholipid membrane 'bubble' called a liposome and particles of hydrogel, a water-filled network of polymer chains. The combination forms a hybrid nanoscale particle that may one day travel directly to specific cells such as tumors, pass easily though the target's cell membrane, and then slowly release a drug payload.
