Caption: Nanorobots fighting cancer, conceptual image. Two nanorobots (right) administering an electrical impulse (nanopulse) to a cancer cell (left). A nanopulse affects structures within cells and in the case of cancers, the pulse leads to the activation of capases (enzymes), which trigger the beginning of cell death. In the future, it is hoped that these nanorobots could be used to fight cancer.
