Targeted delivery of drugs to the tumor site has been a challenge that needs to be tackled. The approach described in this video utilizes nanocarriers -- DNA origami -- to efficiently deliver the drug and ensure its prolonged stay in cancer cells. The goal is to achieve maximal killing of tumor cells with minimal side effects. In this video, Paraskevi Gaki, based on the work of Jiang et al. and Zhang et al., explains the basics of DNA origami, how it works, and what makes it an ideal candidate for the delivery of drugs like doxorubicin.
