Though most of Gangopadhyay’s work is at the research stage, some of her ideas are already sold for commercial use. For instance, she helped develop a plasma-coated plastic, which is both fog- and bullet- proof, to be used on airplane windows. A gene-gun that blasts medicines or genes into cancer cells could revolutionize oncology.
