Our collaboration paper with Dr. Josep Puigmarti-Luis, Dr. Salvador Pane (both from ETH) and Prof. Paolo Falcaro (TU Graz) is published in Adv. Mater. This paper showed the successful collaboration of MOFs with microrobots (so-called MOFBOTS) would create a novel opportunity to develop a sophisticated drug delivery system. We initiated this idea 3.5 year ago. We love this beautiful collaboration and continue developing MOFBOTS system together!! Last but not least, we thank Kyoto University SPIRITS program for supporting this collaboration project. Congratulations, Josep, Salvador and Paolo, plus all of coauthors involved!!
