Nano Needlese Inject Molecules Into Cells, Harvard University And Korea Institute of Science and Technology Study

Med Gadget -- Researchers from Harvard University and Korea Institute of Science and Technology in Seoul are working on a method for introducing molecules into the insides of cells with the help of silicon nanowires. Current methods can be clunky and often require the use of viruses and proteins to ferry molecules, meaning that only certain methods work for a given type of cells. By growing cells on top of specially prepared nanowires, the research team believes that just about any molecule can be introduced into most any type of cell, which may lead to a standard new methodology in biochemistry labs.
