A smart nanomedicine that combines a pH-activated ratiometric probe with a therapeutic gold nanocage for combined cancer diagnostics and treatment.
The first direct observations of how facets form and develop on platinum nanocubes point the way towards more sophisticated and effective nanocrystal design.
A new class of iron oxide nanocarrier activates the immune system and serves as a contrast agent for multiple imaging techniques.
Nanowires can be produced by pulling DNA over micropillar arrays, leaving a simple overcoating step to improve conductivity.
A collaboration between nano- and neuroscientists has resulted in a system that kills the most aggressive, and most common, form of adult brain cancer.
Researchers have developed a DNA biosensor system by controlling the aggregation of AuNPs using horseradish-peroxidase-mimicking DNAzyme.
