#TOTW (from 14-08-14): Tiny pieces of gold ‘boost brain cancer therapy’ in lab

This week I highlighted some interesting research into the use of nanotechnology in the creation of new treatments for cancer, and so this week’s #TOTW is:

‘Tiny pieces of gold ‘boost brain ‘ in lab’

It’s a short article, and all about how scientists have developed very small scale – nanoscale –  spheres, with a core of gold that is coated in chemotherapy drugs. Early research has found this to be an effective way of tackling otherwise difficult to treat cancers.

It’s short. It’s interesting. It’s worth a read!
