Catching Up With Our Gopher Rhodes Scholar

Abstract:
Ashley Nord is currently studying the physics of the bacterial flagellar motor—the motor on a bacterial cell that allows the cell to move.

"Once this is understood, this motor may be able to be used for nanoscale medical operations," she said. "It seems a bit like science fiction at the moment, but imagine sticking a cancer drug to one of these motors, and sending the motor into the body to find the tumor and deliver the medicine."
