Cellular Mimicks (Protocells) Using Porous Silica Nanoparticles Encapsulated by Lipid Bilayers
Researchers at the University of New Mexico Cancer Nanotechnology Platform Partnership (CNPP) and Cancer Nanoscience and Microsystems Training Center (CNTC) are developing new nanoparticle platforms for targeted cellular delivery of multicomponent cargos and observing their interaction with cells in vivo. In this depiction of their technology (termed 'Protocell'), porous silica nanoparticles loaded with multicomponent cargos, covered with a lipid bilayer act via a targeted delivery mechanism to release their contents directly to cancer cells.
