We all talk about the future of medicine – stem cells, genetic manipulation, and of course, nanotechnology. What that actually means though is usually fairly hazy – but it’s nice to think that at some point in the future little robots will be scrubbing our arteries clean of the McDonald’s fries we had 40 years ago.



How feasible is that really though? It’s time to update yourself on what’s coming over the next 50 years. Check out NEJM – they’ve got a great article about nanomedicine over here
