Can Cell Penetration Get Us Closer To A Cancer Cure?
A group of faculty and student researchers at Kennesaw State University have recently discovered a new method for delivering vital proteins into human cells. This new method of cell penetration could have a number of important applications down the road, ranging from improvements to cosmetics all the way to aiding the fight against cancer.
"We've thought of hundreds of applications for bio-technology, from research tools to diagnostics, and eventually to therapeutics that can be improved or created with this 'deliver then release' technology." -Dr. McMurry on the many viable uses of effective cell-penetration.
We talk to KSU’s associate vice president of research Jonathan McMurry and graduate student Verra Ngwa about the science behind their team’s discovery.
