U.S. launches nanomedicine initiative, asks for bright ideas
The National Institutes of Health formally kicked off its nanomedicine initiative Tuesday by soliciting comments from the scientific community to help shape the research project aimed at developing new tools to improve human health. The initiative, which organizers say could last a decade, is a broad program that seeks to catalog molecules and understand molecular pathways and networks. Nanomedicine is one of nine initiatives that make up NIH's roadmap, a long-term plan for improving and accelerating biomedical research.
