Description
Dr. Omid Farokhzad, Harvard Medical nanotechnology researcher, discusses nanotechnology and medicine coming together to be the future of medical treatment. Nanoparticles containing medicine now have homing devices that will distribute the drugs to targeted disease-cells within the body. There is currently clinical research and development happening with nanobots, micro-robots, and smart dust; the first targeted nanoparticle should be clinically approved in this decade for cancer treatments.
