    Argonne nanoscientist Elena Rozhkova is studying ways to enlist nanoparticles to treat brain cancer. This nano-bio technology may eventually provide an alternative form of therapy that targets only cancer cells and does not affect normal living tissue.

Nanoscientists at Argonne are working on a technique to attack brain cancer cells using these coin-shaped magnetic disks. Antibodies on the surface of the disks latch onto cancerous cells. Then, when a weak magnetic field is applied, the disks begin to oscillate, killing the cancer cells. The disks are just a single micron across – about 10 times smaller than the diameter of a single red blood cell. Though the technique is still in early stages of testing, it shows promise.

Scientists Grow Cyborg Tissues With Nanoelectronics - One of the main problems scientists have often faced when studying the changes in human cells is that the electronics used to do so tend to damage the cells. For long, these scientists have sought to find a way of using electronics on a human cell which wouldn't damage it. Now, a group of scientists at Harvard seem to have found just the solution.
