Title: Cancer-Detecting Nanoparticles
Description: Progress in cancer nanotechnology requires a better understanding of how molecular-targeted nanoparticles interact with live cells. Here, when cancer cells (cell nuclei in blue) were treated with antibody-conjugated nanoparticles, the antibodies (red) and the nanoparticle cores (green) separated into different cellular compartments. Such knowledge may lead to improved methods of cancer detection in vivo as well as better nanoparticle-based treatments.
