Eliminating disease

Abstract:
But this is just the beginning of nanotechnology.

"We would like to inject them into the veins and they would find their way into the organ that needs to be treated," Dr. Johannsen said.

At Johns Hopkins, researchers have encapsulated the anti-cancer agent curcumin in nanoparticles. At Northwestern, paralyzed mice were injected with nanoliquid. Six weeks later, they could walk. Right now, both are just in studies, but we could realize the benefits of nanotechnology in the next 10 to 20 years.

"Our goal is to keep people out of nursing homes, instead of extend the time they're in nursing homes," Dr. Sinclair said.
