About a light-powered nanomachine that operates inside a living cell, A development that has strong implications for cancer treatment.
Using clever technology and special chemicals, UCLA scientists were able to create unique transport intracellular nanoparticles, motorized by 'nanoimpellers', that can be manually activated to release their cargo with a switch of a light, potentially allowing for precise targeting of drugs directly to the tumor.
