  • Microrobots deliver cancer drugs to lung tumors in mice
    Engineers at the University of California San Diego have created tiny microrobots that can swim through the lungs to deliver cancer-fighting drugs directly to tumors. This method reduced tumor growth and spread in mice, improving survival rates. These microrobots are a blend of biology and nanotechnology, developed by the labs of professors Joseph Wang and
