DNA origami and cancer-killing wi-fi nanobots
For years I have been reading about the potential for “robots” small enough to fit inside our bloodstreams that can target and deliver drugs to specific cells, most notably cancer cells. Dr. Bachelet Ido hopes to begin human trials by 2017. In this fascinating 2013 video from TedMed Israel, he describes the amazing work his team is doing in the field of DNA nanotechnology, where DNA molecules are used to build “smart” nanobots, some of which can even be controlled by a wifi signal.
