|Title:||Understanding Cancer Biology with Quantum Dot Enhanced Single-molecule Imaging of Carcinoma Cells|
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign supported by a Pathway to Independence Award in Cancer Nanotechnology Research from the National Cancer Institute are developing the next generation of quantum dots to study single-molecule processes in living systems. This image is a transmission electron micrograph of a human carcinoma cell, showing the early stages of quantum dot nanoparticle delivery into cultured cells. Quantum dots, enhanced through silver-development, are shown in green attached to the cellular plasma membrane.
