Rutgers To Create Biological Nano-Motors
Funded by a four-year $1,050,017 grant from the National Science Foundation, and headed by Dr. Constantinos Mavroidis, three engineering departments at Rutgers are teaming up to create a prototype of a nanoscale motor to be part of a system that could eventually travel patients' bloodstreams to help repair damaged cells, organs and DNA. A prototype of the "Viral Protein Nano Motor" is expected to be unveiled in 2007.
