Bio flash mob at MIT re-enacts cancer nanomedicine (w/video)
(Nanowerk News) On April 26, 2012, a large crowd of scientists, local students, and community members
gathered at MIT's David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research. Their purpose:
to bring the tiny technologies of nanomedicine to life in a "Bio Flash Mob."
In this giant-scale science animation, each participant moved, swayed and interacted with neighbors to reenact
nanoparticle-based delivery of therapeutics to a cancer cell.
The event, part of the 2012 Cambridge Science Festival, inspired curious minds of all ages to explore the technologies that are reshaping the future of cancer treatment.
