Science Now Webinar - Nanotechnology in Medicine

Nanotechnology – the science of manipulating the very, very tiny – could revolutionize medicine. Nanomagnets could fry tumors, for example, and an army of nanosensors within the body could detect the onset of life-threatening infections and diseases. Some of these ideas are already in clinical trials. But how far are they from becoming reality? What are the potential side effects? And what will nanotechnology mean for personalized medicine? :: Read the full article »»»»

Since the emergence of nanotechnology, researchers, regulators and the public have been concerned at the potential toxicity of nano-sized products, the U.S. government has an admirably large funding program for the technology, especially in it’s medical application. And though their haven’t been any large scale commercial breakthroughs, nanomedicine battles on to  refine the application of molecular nanotechnology.

Much hope is placed in the forward looking researchers who are as we write, furthering their research into the delivery of drugs via nanoscale particles, macromolecules, biopharmaceuticals, flesh welding surgery utilizing gold coated nanoshells, or the visionary field of neuro-electronic interfaces. The uses of nanoparticles in medicine is seemingly endless, except of course for that handicap all foreign objects face when entering the human body; our immune system and it’s antibodies, Nanomedicine it would seem is the way of the future. At any moment a breakthrough is likely to hit the journals, ‘Nanoparticle Targeting Kills Cancer’ until that day though nonomedicine is largely restricted to diagnostic practice.

Physicist Richard Feynman in 1959 declared that we would one day learn to move individual atoms around, place them precisely where we want and bond them together. By doing this, we could build, tear apart, or modify any object made of atoms.  1959 might seem like a world away, Mr Feynman of course was spot on. Though we’re not sure his application as spelled out was of the human body, spot on by a broad sweep is however, still spot on :: Read the full article »»»»
