Nanoscale cages release drugs as needed

09/2/2013 |

Drugs can be encapsulated in nanoscale cages made of DNA strands modified by lipid-like molecules, with the drugs then released in the body in response to different stimuli, researchers at Canada's McGill University have found. "This research is important for drug delivery, but also for fundamental structural biology and nanotechnology," said McGill chemistry professor Hanadi Sleiman, who led the project.
