NUST MISIS Scientists Develop Gold Nanoparticles for Cancer Treatment

A group of NUST MISIS scientists jointly with their colleagues from the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (Kolkata, India) have managed to synthesize stable gold nanoparticles in the shape of a star to fight against cancer. These inexpensive and non-toxic nanoparticles will allow to effectively diagnose cancer in its early stages and to emphatically destroy compromised cells. The study’s results have been published in the Journal of the Chemical Society.
