Tiny and Fast: This nanomotor is one of the best advancements in medicine, and it will bring us one step closer to a miracle

This tiny motor invented by researchers at the Cockrell School of Engineering at the University of Texas is the smallest (under one micrometer), fastest and longest-running nanomotor. Smaller than a grain of salt it is small enough to fit inside a human cell. The motor is already tested in a non-biological environment and will be used for three things: to move through liquids and to mix and pump biochemicals.

 

"We were able to establish and control the molecule release rate by mechanical rotation, which means our nanomotor is the first of its kind for controlling the release of drugs from the surface of nanoparticles. We believe it will help advance the study of drug delivery and cell-to-cell communications," said lead researcher and mechanical engineering assistant professor, Donglei Fan.
