Xiao Cheng Zeng and colleagues
Layered Nanosphere Shows Biomedical Promise

Xiao Cheng Zeng and colleagues have illustrated that a concentration of short molecular chains will assemble into a layered sphere known as a liposome, which could more precisely release therapeutic drugs or genes as the body peels it away. (9/20/16)
