A peek behind the paper – Oliver Lieleg on building nanoparticle drug carriers unlocked by specific DNA ‘keys’

Written by Oliver Lieleg (Technical University of Munich)

In this interview, Oliver Lieleg, Professor of Biomechanics at the Technical University of Munich (Germany), discusses recent research from his lab where they developed mucin-based nanoparticle drug carriers that only release their therapeutic load when triggered by specific DNA ‘keys’ inside of target cells.

Oliver Lieleg, holding a macroscopic model of a mucin molecule I am a physicist by training, with a specialization in molecular and cellular biophysics; this is also the area in which I conducted...
