Nanorobotics for Drug Delivery： High-throughput Fabrication and Simulated in vivo Navigation
Although current treatments, including surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, are widely performed, there has been limited success. To this day, cancer remains among the top ten causes of death in every developed country. Therefore, there is a strong motivation to develop new or improve upon existing treatments. Recent research in nanomedicine has shown the effectiveness of using nanoparticles to target tumor cells. However, nanoparticles rely heavily on passive movements and targeting moieties to reach a tumor； this leads to poor tumor penetration resulting in the inability to reach hypoxic cells away from blood vessels. To address this issue, the PI seek to improve upon the nanoparticulate drug delivery method by implementing magnetically controlled nanorobots.
