How to cure cancer with a plastic ball?

Check our video!


we, the Dresden Nanormous, use polymers to produce hollow nanoreactors or polymersomes, whose walls contain channels for controlled transport. These channels are built by the DNA-origami technique that way we produce a highly flexible system. By encapsulation of an enyzme and the addition of antibodies we create a smart nanoreactor which could be used to fight cancer!
