'Nano-targeting' cancer and heart disease

Abstract:
Like mix-and-match facial features on a Mr. Potato Head, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have developed a way to load microscopic particles, called nanoparticles, with a variety of useful things, including drugs. The technology may allow them to send imaging agents and medications directly to specific cells.
