MIT engineers an anti-cancer smart bomb

MIT News Office: "Imagine a cancer drug that can burrow into a tumor, seal the exits and detonate a lethal dose of anti-cancer toxins, all while leaving healthy cells unscathed.

MIT researchers have designed a nanoparticle to do just that."

Update: Will it someday be said, that a graduate of the Northeast, a campus in Boston, discovered the cure for cancer?
