Cell-like Nanorobots Clear Bacteria and Toxins from Blood

NanoEngineering Department Chair, Joseph Wang, and NanoEngineering Professor Liangfang Zhang combined technologies to develop nanorobots that can swim through blood and remove harmful bacteria and the toxins they produce. The nanorobots have nanoparticles coated in natural cell membranes and are powered by ultrasound. Wang and Zhang's work was published in Science Robotics and can potentially offer an efficient way to decontaminate and detoxify biological fluids.
