Scientific small wonders

Abstract:
A new "nanoscale" research center at Ohio State University aims to develop ways to mass-produce inexpensive, ultra-small devices to diagnose and treat diseases.

Some day soon, a custom-made magnetic probe no bigger than a few dozen hydrogen atoms could latch on to an infectious protein and steer it to a detector. Or a patch bristling with "nanoneedles" could inject molecules of medicine into an individual cancer cell.
