Scientists are Building Tiny Cancer-Fighting Robots to Combat Disease

Scientists have been working so hard to integrate robotics into intricate medical treatments. Well, due to the reason, doctors now have tiny devices that are excessively used to inject drugs into an individual’s eye. Moreover, such devices are also used on areas which are hard to reach.

The good news is, scientists have recently come up with an effective way to combat cancer using magnetized swarm of microscopic robots.

A team of researchers at Phillips Innovative Technologies in Hamburg, Germany is the mind behind this innovation. They have created a way to place each robot in a swarm and provide them specific tasks through magnetic fields.

“Our method may enable complex manipulations inside the human body,” said study lead author Jurgen Rahmer, a physicist at Philips Innovative Technologies in Hamburg, Germany.

Such a group of scientists believes that treating cancer with this technology can protect healthy tissues and possibly lessen harmful side effects. But, I think it’s too early to say anything until we have some real-life examples.
