Shrinking the war on cancer

Abstract:
Michael Cima's wife referred to the meetings as his "Wednesday poker nights," but, to the chemical engineer, they were more like cram sessions for a college exam. Cima had never done cancer research before, but every Wednesday for months he met with some of the top scientists in the field including a Nobel Prize winner.

Cima may have been hazy on the details of cancer biology, but he had an idea that impressed the high-powered group from MIT and Harvard Medical School: creating a microchip that could detect various types of cancer far earlier than current tests. The chip would use incredibly tiny objects called nanoparticles to look for the earliest signs of cancer -- from inside the patient.
