video How Might Nanobots Change Medicine – First Human Trial


Ido Bachelet from Bar Ilan University gives an intro to his work on molecular nanobots. His claims are groundbreaking – and from what i can tell are at least theoretically feasable.

Now a human trial with a late stage blood cancer patient has begun.

This is what TED say about him:

“Nano-robots that fix tissues and control drugs have been envisioned for over 30 years. Now, using DNA origami and molecular programming, they are reality. These nanobots can seek and kill cancer cells, mimic social insect behaviors, carry out logical operators like a computer in a living animal, and they can be controlled from an Xbox. Ido Bachelet from the bio-design lab at Bar Ilan University explains this technology and how it will change medicine in the near future.

Ido Bachelet earned his Ph.D. from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and was a postdoctoral fellow at M.I.T. and Harvard University. He is currently an assistant professor in the Faculty of Life Sciences and the Nano-Center at Bar Ilan University, Israel, the founder of several biotech companies, and a composer of music for piano and molecules.”

This is from May 2013:

This is November 2014 – where he announces the first human trial:
