It's a small world for these scientists

Abstract:
Ask Cengiz Ozkan what he does and he'll tell you he is an experimentalist. He's all of that. And his work at UC Riverside covers a broad range of complex and intricate projects in the tiniest dimensions yet possible from developing a cancer killer to breaking Moore's Law, or more accurately, extending it into the scientific future.

Ozkan predicted that the physical limits of the law will be reached in 10 to 15 years ending the run in a tired gasp. Ozkan believes his process of DNA-based self-assembly and bottom-up construction can give Moore's Law a new lease on life.

Ozkan's proposed nanoscale cancer killer would seek out the cancer cell and kill its center without damaging healthy tissue around it. He predicts it will be in use by 2016.
