Medical 17 y old girl creates nanoparticle

  1. Dec 9, 2011 #1
    question is, do you know about a link where this particle is explained. All the news sites are dumbed down for the masses so all they say is that some asian girl invented a pill for cancer. HOW DOES IT WORK?

    Any links?

    If you provide a link to what you are talking about then perhaps we can help.

    In light of the lack of information (I've not got time right now to look up for any more information on Ms Zhang's work) there's not much that can be said. Nanoparticles for drug delivery is a huge research field at the moment and includes dendrimers, liposomes, quantum dots, self-assembling peptides, DNA nanotechnology and a host more.
