Hearts, Minds, and Microbubbles

The Morgan Lab, in collaboration with Dr. Tyrone Porter, is working to develop a localized drug delivery system that releases peptides directly into smooth muscle cells. The peptides are attached to microbubbles, which are guided through the bloodstream and burst using ultrasound waves, delivering the peptide. Read the article here.
