Qian and Jason’s paper “Polymeric perfluorocarbon nanoemulsions are ultrasound-activated wireless drug infusion catheters” is now published in Biomaterials. Congrats to the authors!

Here, we show that nanoparticle-mediated ultrasonic drug uncaging is generalizable to a wide range of hydrophobic drugs and also demonstrate the needed stability and drug loading for clinical translation. Given this wide range of drugs, we have the potential to potentially treat diseases as wide-ranging as cancer, neuropsychiatric disorders, and stroke.
