Using carbon nanotubes for drug delivery

Carbon nanotubes, or tiny hollow cylinders of one-atom-thick carbon sheets, have incredible potential for a wide variety of applications due to their strength, flexibility, and other uniquely powerful properties. They are particularly promising in nanotechnology and electronics applications, but Carnegie Mellon University’s Kris Dahl and Mohammad Islam are on an interdisciplinary mission to put these carbon nanotubes to a new use—in medicine.
