Quote of the day

"We envision biocompatible surgical nanorobots that can find and eliminate isolated cancerous cells, remove microvascular obstructions and recondition vascular endothelial cells, perform 'noninvasive' tissue and organ transplants, conduct molecular repairs on traumatized extracellular and intracellular structures, and even exchange new whole chromosomes for old ones inside individual living human cells."

~Robert A. Freitas, Jr. link

"I am certain that nanotechnology holds huge promise. In medicine. In energy. In computer processing. In so many areas. But unless environmental, health, and safety issues are addressed in a way that fosters public understanding and support for nanotechnology, that potential is in jeopardy. I, for one, am unwilling to let that happen."

~U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR)

"We're very optimistic that nanotechnology can markedly improve cancer therapy."

~James Baker, Director, the Michigan Nanotechnology Institute for Medicine and the Biological Sciences.
