Disease Curing Nanorobots

7 NOV 2019

The research team led by Prof SUN Dong has successfully deployed drug-carrying tiny robots to control the spread of cancerous tumours in mice. These cell-sized tiny robots, with just one billionth of a metre wide, are widely used in health care applications. Prof Sun believes that these nanorobots have a good potential to cure human diseases in near future as Hong Kong has advanced medical and robotic technologies to solve the technical challenges ahead.
