Correction for ‘Non-spherical micro- and nanoparticles in nanomedicine’ by Xingjun Zhu et al., Mater. Horiz., 2019, 6, 1094–1121.

In Section 2.2, Cell uptake, in one instance ref. 125 was incorrectly cited rather than ref. 128. The corrected sentence is as below:

“This prediction agrees qualitatively with results from a number of in vitro experiments: gold nanospheres are taken up by HeLa cells to a markedly larger extent than chemically-similar nanorods.128

The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for these errors and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers.
