The new drug delivery system of the NEST Laboratory and the Center for Nanotechnology Innovation of IIT@NEST

Small Nano MicroA group of researchers of the NEST laboratory and CNI@NEST was awarded of the prestigious frontispiece of SMALL for the developing of a new drug delivery and controlled release system of active agents based on gold nanostructures. This innovative nano-material exploits a multi-photon effect observed for the first time at NEST, which makes possible the release of biomolecules with common continuous low-power lasers at wavelengths close to the "optical window" in the visible range. This pioneering study provides an important achievement towards the development of a new class of promising anticancer and therapeutic agents. For more details click on the image.
