Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago Medical Center are shaking up the world of materials science and cancer research on the cover of the February 2010 issue of the journal Nature Materials. Brain cancer is notoriously difficult to treat with standard cancer-fighting methods, so scientists have been looking outside standard medicine and into nanomaterials as a treatment alternative. “Our mission is to develop advanced ‘smart’ materials with unique properties,” said Elena Rozhkova, a nanoscientist with Argonne’s Center for Nanoscale Materials. “These efforts are directed to the improvement of the national quality of life, including creating novel medical technologies.” – from ScienceDaily
