From the WGBH Forum Network: "Dr. Cynthia Bamdad, founder and chief scientific officer of Minerva Biotechnologies Corporation describes her company's nanoparticle-sized biochips and how they are being used to understand how cancer starts and how to stop it. The nanoparticles are used to identify 'smart' drugs that only kill cancer cells by blocking the action of a receptor that is found only on cancer cells."
