TEDxTalk: This Tiny Particle Could Roam Your Body to Find Tumors | Sangeeta Bhatia
What if we could find cancerous tumors years before they can harm us — without expensive screening facilities or even steady electricity?
Physician, bioengineer and entrepreneur Sangeeta Bhatia leads a multidisciplinary lab that searches for novel ways to understand, diagnose and treat human disease.
Her target: the two-thirds of deaths due to cancer that she says are fully preventable.
With remarkable clarity, she breaks down complex nanoparticle science and shares her dream for a radical new cancer test that could save millions of lives.
