It’s tech the size of a nanoscale which is defined as a dimension smaller than 100 nanometers. A nanometer being a billionth of a meter! Mind blown.
Scientist are also developing nanotechnology that can enter the body and make minor repairs or administer treatment at the nanoscale. This could revolutionise current chemotherapy treatment that kills all cells healthy and bad, in a bid to catch the cancerous ones. Working at a local level, nanotechnology could potentially go in and both identify and administer minor repairs on the cancerous cells only.
Woah. It’s certainly extraordinary but research in this field is underway so fingers crossed!
What are your thoughts on this exciting research and do you have anything to add?
