Battelle: Medical nanomachines by 2020

Battelle's list of the Top Ten strategic technologies for 2020 includes: "Nanomachines. Microscopic machines, measured in atoms rather than millimeters, will revolutionize several industries and may perform a wide range of jobs for us-from heating our homes to curing cancer. Battelle researchers see the medical industry as the most important area for nanomachine technology by 2020. 'We may be able to develop nanomachines that will go into your body and find and destroy individual cancer cells while not harming healthy cells,' says Battelle Senior Research Scientist Kevin Priddy. Nanomachines also could be used to deliver drugs to highly localized places in the body, to clean arteries, and to repair the heart, brain, and other organs without surgery."
