Tiny bubbles

Abstract:
Imagine a tiny soap bubble with miniature passengers clinging to it. Traveling together through the body, they head straight for the lymph nodes where the passengers jump off and get to work making sure the body is protected from the black plague. That's the idea behind an MSU project, and another example of how MSU researchers are involved with nanotechnology and nanomaterials. Ben Lei, assistant professor in veterinary molecular biology, is collaborating with Jon Nagy of NanoValent Pharmaceuticals in Bozeman. Their project uses a nano-particle that Nagy developed from lipid molecules. The particle's structure is similar to that of a soap bubble and allows protective agents to be attached to its surface. The goal is to boost immunity by making vaccines more effective.
