Biomotor and RNA Nanotechnology Research

NIH funded researcher, Dr. Peixuan Guo at the University of Kentucky has developed three major breakthroughs. This video illustrates the discovery of a revolving biomotor that can serve as a prototype for synthetic nanomotors to deliver therapeutic DNA, RNA, or drugs into diseased cells; the discovery to this biomotor into a lipid membrane for environmental monitoring athlete drug screening and disease diagnosis has the potential to deliver a persons entire genome for as low as 1000 through singlepore DNA sequencing; and creation of an RNA nanotechnology platform to construct nanoparticles to treat cancer.
