Dream big to fight childhood illnesses

Abstract:
If a child has brain cancer, his genes one day could be compared with those of 500 cancer-free children to identify a mutation or combination of mutations in the ill child. That knowledge might lead to new therapies to fight the cancer. And through nanotechnology, tiny devices might be able to monitor the bloodstream for cancer cells.
