MD/PhD student co-authors study on using nanowires in cells

Md/PhD student Ramya Parameswaran (Biophysical Sciences)

MD/PhD student Ramya Paramesawran (Interdisciplinary Scientist Training Program/Biophysical Sciences) co-authored a study about how silicon nanowires can be used to understand how diseases work. The study, published in Science Advances on December 16, explains how silicon nanowiring may be the future of next-generation therapies. The wires can be implanted into individual cells and then stimulated to deliver drugs or genetic therapies, take measurements, or alter individual components of the cell.
