• Nanospears deliver genetic material to cells with pinpoint accuracy

    7 days ago - By ScienceDaily

    In a step toward accelerating the production of new gene therapies, scientists report that they have developed remote-controlled, needle-like nanospears capable of piercing membrane walls and delivering DNA into selected cells. They say the new technique, which can ferry biological materials to cells with pinpoint accuracy, overcomes many of the existing barriers to effective gene modification.
