  1. Researchers use nanoparticles to shrink tumors in mice 
    UCLA scientists show that mesoporous silica nanoparticles(MSNs), tiny particles with thousands of pores, can store and deliver chemotherapeutic drugs in vivo and effectively suppress cancer tumors.  July 08, 2010







  2. Standing room only at the Novel Nanodelivery of siRNA/miRNA Symposium at CNSI 
    More than 250 faculty and graduate students attended the Novel Nanodelivery of siRNA/miRNA Symposium on June 10th at the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA. The auditorium was filled to capacity and video streaming was made available in the lobby to accommodate the over flow of attendees.  June 17, 2010







  3. Researchers use X-ray diffraction microscope to reveal 3-D internal structure of whole cell 
    Using the new technique, researchers were able to identify the 3-D morphology and structure of cellular organelles, including the cell wall, vacuole, endoplasmic reticulum, mitrochondria, granules and nucleolus.  June 04, 2010







  4. UCLA researchers design nanomachine that kills cancer cells 
    Researchers from the Nano Machine Center at the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA have developed a novel type of nanomachine that can capture and store anticancer drugs inside tiny pores and release them into cancer cells in response to light.  March 31, 2008







  5. Researchers at UCLA Develop New Nanomaterials to Deliver Anticancer Drugs to Kill Cancer Cells 
    Researchers at UCLA have successfully manipulated nanomaterials to create a new drug-delivery system that promises to solve the challenge of the poor water solubility of today's most promising anticancer drugs and thereby increase their effectiveness. Th...  June 06, 2007
