Very encouraging technology development and trend that could have a valuable impact in the future of health care.  Targeting specific cells could dramatically reduce the collateral damage on surrounding healthy tissue and provide a new break-through in disease treatment.

Elizabeth, I sincerely hope this is a very fast-growing field.

Beyond the molecular robots you've described, I've hopes to see true nanobot technology, ones that can be directed to a specific location in the body.  Inoperable brain tumors would be a thing of the past.

For that matter, incurable wouldn't mean unbeatable.  Such technology would permit going after the tumors each time they appear.  Visits for treatment would be similar to weekly dialysis trips.
