About Me

Science communication is important in today's technologically advanced society. A good part of the adult community is not science saavy and lacks the background to make sense of rapidly changing technology. My blog attempts to help by publishing articles of general interest in an easy to read and understand format without using mathematics. I also give free lectures in community events - you can arrange these by writing to me.

Nanotechnology for All - Nanomedicine (Talk 6)

Nanomedicine
Nanotechnology is already making serious impact in medicine.  This is because biological systems work at the molecular level which inaccessible  in the past.  With nanotechnology, it promises to probe and modify biology at the molecular level and directly address the problem of diagnosis, detection, drug delivery etc. The current progress is already very impressive:

 




Lot of the applications are still at research stage but it is just a matter of time when nanotechnolgy will change the way people look at medical care - from prevention through early diagnosis, treatment of even major diseases through cell repairs, efficient drug delivery systems etc.  The future indeed look promising.
