More Nano Medicine

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

As I always say, I can envision some really interesting uses of nanotechnology in the building and construction industry in the very near future. The article linked below describes a kind of "smart" cancer treatment whereby a protein that is attracted only by certain types of cancer cells is attached to two molecules of gold and a molecule of iron oxide and sent to attach itself to the cancer cells, at which point a low grade infrared laser targets the cell, heating the metals and destroying the cancer cell.

I have a vague recollection of similar technologies being used to destroy / repair building materials. Again, I can envisions a wide array of uses.
