It has also been suggested they could constitute a hitherto unseen hazard. Numerous experimental studies in the field are taking place. We consider that the nature of the interactions allows a more fundamental theoretical framework to be developed. In particular, we describe the intimate link that develops between nanoparticle uptake and cell population evolution. Explicit analytical results are given and the theory compared to experimental observations.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IOP Science||Journal:||EPL : Europhysics Letters||Volume:||101||Issue:||3||Start page:||38007||Copyright (published version):||EPLA, 2013||Keywords:||Molecule-cell interactions; Targeted drug delivery; Cell population evolution; Nanoparticle-cell interactions||DOI:||10.1209/0295-5075/101/38007||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
