Silica Nanoshells to Deliver Therapy and Image Contrast Agents
|Title:||Silica Nanoshells to Deliver Therapy and Image Contrast Agents|
Researchers at the Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence for the Treatment, Understanding and Monitoring of Cancer (NanoTumor) headquartered at the University of California, San Diego hope to develop a practical nanotechnology to diagnose, treat, and monitor cancers. This image shows hollow silica nanoshells that were fabricated at the NanoTumor Center by templated sol-gel chemistry and are being applied in the imaging of as well as the targeted drug and gene delivery treatments to cancer.
