Researchers with hairy nanoparticles

Georgia Tech Professor Zhiqun Lin and Postdoctoral Fellow Yihuang Chen discuss samples of hairy nanoparticles made with light-sensitive materials that assemble themselves with light exposure. The nanoparticles could one day become “nano-carriers” providing doctors a new way to simultaneously introduce both therapeutic drugs and cancer-fighting heat into tumors.
