Caption: Cockrell School of Engineering assistant professor Donglei (Emma) Fan and her mechanical engineering team have built the fastest, smallest nanomotor to date. The team's nanomotor could enable controlled drug delivery on the nanoscale. One day, nanomotors could power tiny devices that seek out and treat cancer cells inside the body.
