Hong Kong | HKU chemists develop world’s first light-seeking synthetic Nanorobot for potential biomedical applications

A team of researchers led by Dr Jinyao Tang of the Department of Chemistry, the University of Hong Kong, has developed the world’s first light-seeking synthetic Nano robot. With size comparable to a blood cell, those tiny robots have the potential to be injected into patients’ bodies, helping surgeons to remove tumors and enabling more precise engineering of targeted medications. The findings have been published in October earlier in leading scientific journal Nature Nanotechnology.
