Self-driving vesicles penetrate blood-brain barrier
Nanoparticles that propel themselves through fluids could someday deliver drugs in the body. Unfortunately, their motion is usually undirected.
Now, an international team of researchers, led by Giuseppe Battaglia, a professor of molecular bionics at University College London, reveals a design that could point the self-driving nanoswimmers in a valuable direction: the brain (Sci. Adv. 2017, DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1700362).
