Doctors have used radiation to treat cancer for over a century, but it's always been a delicate art to direct treatment while avoiding healthy tissue.
Researchers at Rice University have developed a noninvasive technology that accurately detects low levels of malaria infection through the skin in seconds with a laser scanner.
Gloved hand with beaker of gold nanoparticles
Researchers at UT Dallas have combined tiny gold nanoparticles with a technique called in vivo near-infrared fluorescence imaging to study early stage kidney disease in a live animal model.

Engineers at MIT and Lawrence Livermore National Lab have devised a way to translate that airy, yet remarkably strong, structure down to the nanoscale — designing a system may set new records for stiffness for a given weight.
A group of engineers at the University of Texas have developed what they are calling the smallest and best such nanomotor ever built.
Illustration of nanoparticle decoy that traps flu virus
When misted into the lungs, a carefully constructed spherical nanoparticle coated in sialic acid traps influenza A, holding it until the virus self-destructs.
