Nanotechnology is thought by many to be the final frontier of medicine. While this technology has been in development nearly two decades already, widespread adoption has only come very recently. Today there are tiny pills that can detect your gut microbiome, administer a course of medication, and help doctors see inside your intestines in a noninvasive way.
There’s technology that can attack cancer cells by cutting off their blood supply and technology that can heal ulcers in a minimally invasive way. The future of nanotechnology in medicine is looking bright, too - in just five years the global market for nanotech will exceed $125 billion.
Medical nanotech is being used to improve vaccination rates worldwide and care for wounds in places where access to medical care is scarce. Nanotechnology is helping to turn cell phones into microscopes in places where such technology is difficult to come by. Tiny tech is making a big impact in medicine.
