Nanos on the Inside [electronic resource]: The Promise of Nanomedicine

La Compagnie des Taxi-Brousse
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Nanomedicine holds immense promise for enabling doctors to intervene in an illness or injury directly at the cellular level. Filmed in Europe, Asia, and the United States, this program shows viewers oncologic nanomarkers that can identify even tiny tumors with pinpoint precision; injectable intelligent delivery systems that can evade bodily and pathogen defenses to deliver targeted nanodoses of medicine without harming surrounding tissue; regenerative nanotherapies, as illustrated by an experiment in which a mouse's optic nerve is severed and then repaired; nanoscale lab-on-chip devices that will one day automate continual monitoring/dosing cycles; and more. Produced by La Compagnie des Taxi-brousse in partnership with UER/EBU, EEC DG Research, CNC, Region L-R, PROCIREP-ANGOA, France5, UR, RTBF, and TFO.
