 Faraday Discuss., 2013,166, 269-283 DOI: 10.1039/C3FD00058C, Paper

Article published in Faraday Discussions  during the PostDoc stage of Dr. Rükan Genç in Biomimetics Lab (BML) of UNAM is listed as the top 10 most readed article from October-December of 2013.  Manuscript covers development of  a cell penetrating peptite amphiphile integrated liposomal system  which  further has been conducted to in vitro tests to demonstrate their delivery potential as anticancer drug carrier. “Curvature Tuned Liposome Preparation” methodology developed by Rükan Genç during her Ph.D was used to prepare liposomes which were functionalized by peptite amphiphiles designed in BML.
