About Magnetic Nanoparticles and Cells
MPIP again participates in "Project of the month"
December 11, 2012
The Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) has awarded a research collaboration in which the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) participates as "Project of the month November". The project deals with interaction between nanoparticles and cells. This is already the second time this year that scientists at the MPI-P receive this rating. Prof. Werner Steffen, his coworkers and the University of Applied Science Kaiserslautern jointly study the interaction between magnetic nanoparticles and neurons. Their research results are an important contribution for the use of nanoparticles for medical purposes, for instance in cancer therapie & diagnostics.
