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.

Strong hydrogels that respond to force, heat and light

Novel hydrogels not only exhibited remarkable optical response from pale yellow to purple color and from green to red fluorescence under external stimuli of force, heat, and UV light, but also simply reversed its color back to the original one by white light.
