Teen Prodigy of Pancreatic Cancer

Recommended Posts

This kids designed a relatively simple way to detect pancreatic cancer. One of the hardest cancers to detect because of where the pancreas is located.

 

Sad thing is, with patenting and what not, it will take years before this can even be used.

I also just read about a 17 year old Asian girl who potentially has the cure for cancer :o

 

Nanotechnology seems to be a really big thing at the moment and seems like we can benefit a lot from it in a variety of ways!
