New hope for lipophilic nanoparticles in biology

Nanoparticles show enormous potential for therapeutics due to unique properties that emerge in nanostructured materials. Quantum dots, for instance, show robust size-dependent fluorescence that allows potential applications in medical imaging. Silicon is a particularly promising material for medical applications of quantum dots because bulk silicon is non-toxic and fluorescence of silicon nanoparticles can be tuned […]

FSU researchers take big step forward in nanotech-based drugs

Nanotechnology has become a growing part of medical research in recent years, with scientists feverishly working to see if tiny particles could revolutionize the world of drug delivery. But many questions remain about how to effectively transport those particles and associated drugs to cells.  In an article published today in Scientific Reports, FSU Associate Professor […]
