How to deliver drugs into a cell while doing no harm - By Howard Lovy

Abstract:
Drexel University in Philadelphia tells us about professors Yury Gogotsi and Gary Friedman, who use a nanotube-based device, known as a cellular endoscope, to evaluate cells and deliver fluorescent quantum dots all without the cells even knowing they're being probed. "Endoscopes provide a potentially transformative technology for studying the fundamentals of single living cells and more broadly, for cell biology," Gogotsi says in a prepared statement.
