Title: Nanoparticles in Glioma Cell Nuclei
Description: Water-insoluble compounds such as curcumin can be difficult to deliver to cells because they cannot travel through the body's watery environment. By conjugating curcumin to dendritic nanoparticles (green), the compound was able to reach the cytoplasm and nuclei (blue) of human malignant glioma cells.
