Measuring Marker Expression to Decipher Metastatic Potential from Individual Cells with Quantum Dots
Researchers at the Emory-Georgia Tech Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence are using semiconductor nanoparticles (quantum dots) to reveal the molecular fingerprints of individual cells for early detection of cancer. By examining the expression of these markers, it is possible to determine metastatic potential of the disease and prescribe personalized and effective therapy.
