Elizabeth Nance

Elizabeth Nance developed the first nanoparticles that can penetrate deep within the brain (most medicines can’t get past the protective "blood-brain barrier").

These nanoparticles will potentially allow doctors to safely gather more information, and better images, from the brain, even in newborn babies.

She is currently testing these nanoparticles in animals, with an eye toward treating diseases including stroke, autism, and cerebral palsy.
