Nanotechnology breakthrough in cancer treatment to be unveiled in webcast at University of Arkansas

(Nanowerk News) Nanotechnology scientists at UALRand UAMS Monday will present a briefing on a new discovery in the fight to eradicate cancer. The discovery has promise for a new generation of treatment options beyond surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.
Researchers Dr. Alex Biris and Dr. Vladimir P. Zharov will describe their collaborative findings of what is believed to be the first demonstration of the real time detection, tracking, and killing cancer cells in live tissue with the use of carbon nanotubes.
We already reported about this work in a recent Nanowerk Spotlight: Novel technique for real-time detection of carbon nanotubes in the body.
The briefing will be available on a live streaming webcast through UStream. To watch, click on this link before the 10 a.m. briefing begins: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/Nanotechnology-Press-Briefing-18-May-2009.
