Scholarcy highlights

  • This paper presents the use of nanoscale chemistry to synthesize a multilevel, hierarchically built nanoparticle, which we define as a nanoclinic, for targeted diagnostics and therapy
  • This nanoclinic, produced by multistep chemistry in a nanosize micelle, consists of a thin silica shell encapsulating magnetic nanoparticles and fluorescent dyes for enhanced contrast magnetic resonance and optical imaging and magnetic-induced cancer therapy. The surface of these prototype nanoclinics is functionalized with a biotargeting group, luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone
