Army gives nanotech research financial ammo to battle cancer

Abstract:
The war on cancer has an unusual ally: the U.S. Department of Defense. The department has allocated more than $1.5 billion since 1992 for research efforts aimed at eradicating breast cancer. In recent years, it has added nanotechnology-based approaches to its arsenal.

Beneficiaries include startups such as Nanoplex Technologies Inc. in Menlo Park, Calif., and BioForce Nanosciences Inc. in Ames, Iowa, as well as Naomi Halas, scientist at Rice University in Houston.
