Scientists Put Motors Inside Cells
10 February 2014 2:30 pm
For the first time, scientists were able to control teeny-tiny nanomotors placed inside of living cells, getting the motors to rev up, move around, and spin within the cells’ walls. The devices, powered by ultrasonic waves, were put inside a line of human cervical cancer cells, according to a paper published today in Angewandte Chemie International Edition. The researchers believe that the findings could pave the way for cell manipulation by eventually having the motors conduct “surgery” on cells.
