Nanomedicine in Japan

Japan is breaking ground in areas the rest of the world will soon be addressing: old age, cancer, neuroscience. The tiny weapon of choice to defeat these diverse threats is nanomedicine. Japan has pumped millions into pursuing the dream of invisible devices, working from within to detect, diagnose and treat. It’s a strategy on the cusp of reaping significant rewards. Multidisciplinary teams are designing micelles coated in compounds to ensure their safe passage to the right areas of the body to deliver drugs where and when they are needed. The results are nothing short of remarkable.
