Nanotech 2007 – News for Cancer


Kristin: Dr Anna Barker from the National Cancer Institute spoke yesterday on the ‘Promise of Nanotechnology in Cancer’ at the NSTI Nanotech 2007 Conference. She concentrated on the three main areas in which nanotechnology could play a part in addressing cancer – early detection, improving imaging techniques for diagnosis and better drug delivery.  While suggesting that the translation of research to the clinical environment was a challenge, she also said that some of these new techniques could make a difference in the prevention and treatement of the disease within as little as 3 years.
