New Preprint: Isolating the sources of heterogeneity in nanoparticle-cell interactions

Experiments show that interactions between nanoparticles and cells are heterogeneous – there is a distribution of nanoparticle-cell uptake even when the nanoparticles being delivered are nominally identical. This is important because delivering the appropriate dose of a nanomedicine, in part, … Continue reading
