Repairing Organs With the Touch of a Nanochip

Researchers at Ohio State University developed a way to change cells inside the body from one type to another—with just one touch from a nanochip. This new technology, called “tissue nanotransfection ,” could be used to repair and regenerate body tissues, including organs, in a way that is non-invasive and painless. “When these things come out for the first time, it’s basically crossing the chasm from impossible to possible,” says Chandan Sen , co-leader of the study. “We have established feasibility.” Previously, experiments with this sort of cell type conversion were done outside the body, in petri dishes. Even if cells from the test subject were removed from the body, converted in the lab, and then reinserted into the body, those new cells often incited an immune response and were rejected. Sen’s method is unique because the conversion takes place entirely inside the bo...
