Description

Researchers at DTU Nanotech are investigating methods where gold particles with specific surfaces are able to ‘trick’ their way through these defensive barriers and enter the brain. The brain has a tremendously well protected barrier, which separates the fragile brain from toxic particles and other harmful influences in the bloodstream. Only certain molecular moieties are allowed to pass.
