These nanoparticles enter glioblastoma tumor cells in the brain. They shut down the tumor cells and carry a “beacon” that allows us to track the position of the nanoparticles. Our goal is to cure brain cancer while simultaneously tracking how our nanomedicine is working inside the patient. In addition to other methods, we use images like these to confirm that we are correctly building our nanomedicine.
