Attacking Cancer with Targeted Nanoparticles


Submitted by Stephen W. Morton and Kevin E. Shopsowitz in the Hammond Laboratory at the Koch Institute


This image was taken to investigate the targeting capabilities of the nanoparticles for a given cancer cell type. It shows the flooding of cancer cells with targeted medicine to deliver potent cocktails of drugs. This technology is one of the workhorses of the Hammond lab towards the manufacturing of new and innovative therapies for cancer.
