The use of DNA to assemble inorganic nanoparticles into superstructures is an emerging strategy to build non‐toxic delivery vehicles for targeting diseases in the body. The impact of the core–satellite nanosystem design in mediating drug storage, drug release (via heat), and killing of HeLa cells in culture is investigated.
