Nanotechnology in Medicine
Transcript of Nanotechnology in Medicine
There are 25,400,000 nanometers in an inch.
Nanoscience and nanotechnology allow people to see and control individual atoms and molecules.
Researchers have been working on nanomaterials that will fix themselves, because of this doctors may later install nanoscale machines in peoples bodies to help them see, move and heal.
What is Nanotechnolgy?
What nanotechnology is used for?
HOW IT WORKS
Controlling and bending light around an object so it appears invisible to the naked eye is the theory behind fictional invisibility cloaks.
How it will be used for computers
Nanotechnology will be able to aid computers because of what nanotechnology is itself. By using the concept of nanotechnology in general, scientist will be able to make computer chips so small that any large: Business, University, or Government will be able to store all of its confidential data onto one single pocket-sized USB drive. Nanotechnology will be able to provide you with more hard drive space, faster transfer rates, and computers will take up a lot less space.
NanoTech in Med
How NanoTech is used in engineering
NanoTech used in products
By: Christina Schubert, Isabel Schoaf, Lance Molitor, and Ian Zellweger.
Many people have already used nanotechnology because it is in some sunscreens, hair products, etc.
Household items have been altered to were they can clean themselves. Some things can run themselves. For example vacuum cleaners.
Cancer therapies are currently limited to surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. All three methods risk damage to normal tissues or incomplete eradication of the cancer.
•protects drugs from being degraded in the body before they reach their target.
•enhance the absorption of drugs into tumors and into the cancerous cells themselves.
•allow for better control over the timing and distribution of drugs to the tissue, making it easier for oncologists to assess how well they work.
•prevent drugs from interacting with normal cells, thus avoiding side effects
The branch of technology that
copes of less than 100 nanometers.There is 1 billion nanometers in a meter.
Investments in nanotechnology-related to health, environment, and safety research is nearly 900 million dollars since 2005.
A study by has revealed that 6 million jobs will be needed dealing with nanotechnology by 2020 worldwide with 2 million of those jobs in the United States.
Dr. Rima Laibow believes nanosilver could be a cure for ebola.
If you inhale nanoparticles you could have:
Inflammation of the lungs
Terrorist's and criminals could use nanotechnology as a weapon.
Florescent nanoparticles glow inside the body making it easier to see tumors and organ damage.
Researches from Yale have created plastic nanospheres that can help fight infections in the immune system.
Synthetic neurons have been tested which could help with assistive brain implants.
Nanotechnology could cure many people’s diseases, disabilities, and could also regenerate cells.
What you are looking at is a nanobot, these can be filled with medicine and inserted into your body, they will swim through your blood stream directly to the problem and attach.
