The identification of peptides to optimize both the delivery and tumor penetration of existing cancer drugs in a cell-selective manner would be highly desirable. The screening of a peptide nucleic acid (PNA)-encoded peptide library (see picture) now allows the identification of versatile cell homing peptides for any cell type of interest.
