Nanoparticle-based drug delivery in the fight against cancer


On July 27, 2020

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. CREDITS

This animation was created by UNSW’s 3D Visualisation Aesthetics Lab and was informed by the scientific imaging and cancer research of UQ IMB’s Professor Rob Parton and his team. Their combined efforts are part of the research activities of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Bio-Nano Science and Technology.
