Magnetically-enhanced GI colonization

Congratulations to Marjorie, Pradeep and colleagues on their new paper in Advanced Materials describing the use of magnetic fields to help probiotic agents localize and colonize within the mammalian gastrointestinal tract. This technology can help bacterial therapies find and establish themselves in their niche without disruptive antibiotics.
