This new work paves the way for the clinical use of nanodiamonds to both deliver therapeutics and remotely track the activity and location of the drugs.The ability to image nanodiamonds in vivo would be useful in biological studies where long-term cellular fate mapping is critical, such as tracking beta islet cells or tracking stem cells.MRI is a noninvasive medical imaging technique that uses an intravenous contrast agent to produce detailed images of internal structures in the body.
Who would have thought that "Hot Dog" Sturtevant, the man who by his late twenties had already developed linkage mapping, discovered gynandromorphs, studied courtship behavior, and was about to develop fate mapping would have worked in a lab in which there was a "jumble of bottles and equipment piled on the desks, .
