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.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
