They discuss examples of current work that have mostly already been tracked in nanodot.
- Pancreatic cells encased in nanoscale containers with nanopores.
- Quantum dot tagging of stem cells.
- Fullerine and nanotube based drugs.
They spin nanomedicine as being the ultimate of what we will see from nanotech rather than molecular nanotech with assemblers. They don't see it as being on the road to and part of molecular nanotech. Eric Drexler,as usual, is mentioned, as is "Fantastic Voyage"."
