Shape-shifting nanoparticles flip from sphere to net in response to tumor signal

from University of California, San Diego via R&D Magazine

Scientists at the University of California, San Diego have designed tiny spherical particles to float easily through the bloodstream after injection, then assemble into a durable scaffold within diseased tissue. An enzyme produced by a specific type of tumor can trigger the transformation of the spheres into net-like structures that accumulate at the site of a cancer, the team reports in Advanced Materials. more
