Nanoparticle Chemical Viruses Deliver Drugs to Cells

Nanoparticle Chemical Viruses Deliver Drugs to Cells

Viruses are able to redirect the functioning of cells in order to infect them. Inspired by their mode of action, scientists from the CNRS and Université de Strasbourg have designed a "chemical virus" that can cross the double lipid layer that surrounds cells, and then disintegrate in the intracellular medium in order to release active compounds.
