There is a decreasing advantage as more students are added. When organization and management of the project are considered, too many students would make the project less efficient. But it is significant that two or three students working on a project with individual but related tasks might finish the project in half the time or less at the same cost. In general, benefits of working in teams of two or more students are that the research may progress faster and be more competitive to secure funding especially from industry and small business innovative research (SBIR) type projects, results are faster to commercialization and applications, students learn more working in teams and it prepares them for working in industry, it is fun to work with others, and more joint publications and invention disclosures can result from working in teams.

Other approaches to increase the device half-life are mentioned next. Most proteins and cells in the body are negatively charged. Positively charged particles are removed from the body quickly. Thus, designing a particle or device that has a negative potential may be one way to increase the half-life of the device. Coating particles with poly-ethylene-glycol (PEG) or heparinizing the particle (to treat with heparin to prevent coagulation) may increase the circulation half-life of the particle. Nanopatterning the surface of the particle may also help, but the proteins that will attack the particle first are on the order of nanometers in size.
