UB Biomedical Engineering Researchers Develop a new drug delivery method to target cancer cells - not the entire body - and limit the side effects of chemotherapy.  This image shows a nanoballoon before (left) and after (right) being hit by a red laser. The laser causes the balloon to pop open and release the anti-cancer drugs directly at a tumor. Credit: Jonathan Lovell.
