Taking the path less travelled to stop brain diseases in their tracks

2 July 2020:

Tiny structures called nanocages have the potential to revolutionise treatment of conditions like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.

Two researchers, seemingly worlds apart: one a nanoscientist, the other a neuroscientist. Born in different hemispheres with labs in different states, at the start of their game-changing collaboration 2 years ago, they felt they were speaking different languages.
