Hyelim Kang, Shin-Hyun Kim, Seung-Man Yang, and Ji-Ho Park"Bio-Inspired Nanotadpoles with Compartmental Functionality for Phototherapy," Journal of Materials Chemistry Baccepted for publication (2014).

We report multifunctional nanotadpole (NTP) particles composed of a plasmonic head and polymeric tail. Their asymmetric shape and surface property facilitate cellular uptake, enabling the photothermal treatment of cancer cells with high efficacy.
