This Process Can Turn Mice Organs Clear

Nanoparticle technology has the potential to treat disease without side effects through better drug delivery.

Nanoparticle technology has the potential to treat disease without side effects through better drug delivery. One of main obstacles researchers have is being able to see where drug-loaded nanoparticles go once they’re inside organs and tissues.

Warren Chan and his colleagues in Canada and Germany injected an acrylamide hydrogel into organs and tissues removed from mice, to make them clear.
