Rotello develops 24-karat gold key to unlock the immune system

Vincent Rotello, Chemistry, graduate student Daniel Moyano, and a team of researchers have developed a system using nanoparticles of pure gold covered in chemical residues that interact with immune cells in the body. The research could lead to increased understanding of the properties of viruses and bacteria and help in developing better drug delivery systems and more effective medications and vaccinations.
