This animation describes the latest research developments in nanoparticle-based cancer therapies. It explores how the technology can be used to specifically target cancer cells over healthy cells and how scientists can exploit the natural processes of cells to deliver the drug inside the cell where it is needed for its cancer-killing effect.
