"The physicochemical properties of particles dominate cellular uptake and subsequent influences on cell functions"
Zhengwei Mao, Ph.D., Zhejiang University, China
With the rapid development of nanotechnology, many kinds of nanoparticles have been and are being used in biological and medical fields of industry and scientific researches. Therefore, it would be of paramount importance to understand the correlation between the molecular structure and physicochemical properties of the particles and their the interactions with cells, the smallest building blocks of tissues and organs.
