Electric Jolt Releases Biomolecules and Nanoparticles

Johns Hopkins researchers have devised a way to use a brief burst of electricity to release biomolecules and nanoparticles from a tiny gold launch pad. The technique could someday be used to dispense small amounts of medicine on command from a chip implanted in the body… This method could be used to control the release of drug molecules; nanoparticles; biopolymers such as peptides, proteins and DNA; and protein assemblies such as viruses, said Peter C. Searson , professor of materials science and engineering and director of the Institute for NanoBioTechnology at Johns Hopkins… >> read more on JHU news
