We briefly discuss the field with Rooz Ghaffari, a nanotechnologist who founded MC10, a company that is focused on using nanotechnology to build patch-like sensors for the body that will change healthcare forever.

How is nanotechnology poised to help change human health for the better?

Roozbeh: Nanotechnology has spurred advances across many industries including clean energy to drug delivery.

Digit: We’ve heard about quite a few applications of nanotechnology that the common person may not understand completely, and hence deem impossible.

The implications for having less targeted drug therapy with nanorobotic agents highlights the promise of nanotechnology to fight disease like cancer.

There are important health-related applications for nanotechnology.

Roozbeh: There are a number very promising directions for nanotechnology in healthcare.
