Molecular nanosubmarines can target and kill specific cancer cells

These tiny molecules can hunt down and kill specific cancer cells

In 2015, scientists from Rice University revealed they had created light-driven nanosubmarines. These tiny molecular machines were activated by ultraviolet light and based on earlier work from Nobel laureate Bernard Feringa, whose ground-breaking research won the prize for chemistry in 2016. These single-molecule machines have now been shown to be able to target, and drill into, Specific Cancer Cells, paving the way for a variety of highly targeted future nanomedicine treatments.
