You've hand-picked your army and you are ready for battle. One step at a time, you use different approaches to try to destroy your enemies. But this battle is a bit different, because it's going on at the cellular level and on a much, much smaller scale. Using nanoparticles, doctors are taking the fight against bad or harmful cells down to a new, tiny arena.
In Latch and Catch, you will design nanoparticle bombs—called nanobombs—that can destroy bad cells, while leaving the healthy cells untouched. While you play, you can learn about receptor proteins and how tiny medicine knows which cells to latch onto.
