New nanotechnology laboratory to be built
University Regents unanimously approved a proposal for a new nanotechnology institute last week, giving support to a scientific field that may have the ability to combat cancer cells while leaving healthy cells unharmed.
The current Center for Biologic Nanotechnology at the University has several research projects that will continue under the new institute. One of these projects is the development of a nanodevice that could recognize cancer cells, diagnose the cause of a cancer, deliver drugs to the cells report the drug levels in the cells, and report the death of a cancer cell, according to the website.
