Scientists Target Cancer With DNA Robots

Scientists at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard have developed nanoscale robots, comprised of DNA, which might one day be used to deliver instructions directly to the cells of a patient’s body. This technique could be used to fight different diseases and could, for example, cause cancer cells to kill themselves.

That is exciting. Let's hope it works (and doesn't cost $500,000 per treatment).
