Scientists think big, take on mini ideas

Abstract:
The reality of miniaturization work hasn't matched the fantasy of the 1960s movie "Fantastic Voyage," which saw a microscopic submarine injected into a human body on a medical rescue mission, says University of Louisville professor Robert Keynton.

"That's science fiction," said Keynton, chairman of U of L's department of bioengineering and associate director of the school's micro/nanotechnologies center. Still, he told the Venture Club of Louisville last week, research is moving forward on remarkable ideas, such as manmade devices that could be "placed into the human body in order to go out and cure disease and solve problems."
