Medicine in miniature

Abstract:
Jamie Walters: Imagine if you could swallow a doctor, have him look around inside you and fix anything that's wrong. It sounds ridiculous but nanotechnology, the science of the very small, might make it possible.

The recent discovery of cancer 'smart bombs' - tiny particles that can seek out and destroy tumours while leaving healthy tissue alone - is only the tip of a potentially very large (or should we say very small) iceberg.
