Technology Spotlight: New Cancer-Fighting DNA Nanobots

Scientists are tapping into a breakthrough in medical nanotechnology by creating tiny, DNA-based search and destroy nanobots that are programmed to find cancer cells in the human body and deliver a deadly payload.

The nanobot approach is modeled after the human immune response mechanism, so the bots attack the foreign bodies without any damage to their host. The possible applications for this new technology are endless. Learn more in this week’s Technology Spotlight.
