Nanobodies produced by camels are showing to be highly effective in and safe for fighting certain types of cancers. Scientists at the University of Copenhagen are using them to develop therapies to fight breast and colon cancers.

The FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has approved the first clinical trial in humans of Cornell dots, brightly glowing nanoparticles that can light up cancer cells in PET-optical imaging. The technology aims to safely show surgeons extent of tumors in human organs.

Boston University researchers have developed a portable diagnostic device that can quickly identify dangerous viruses with very small blood samples. Meanwhile, researchers at Columbia use nanoscale science to identify how these viruses trigger disease.
