Description: The National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health, hosts a media briefing on the formal announcement of its $144.3 million, five-year integrated initiative to develop and apply nanotechnology to cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment. Nanotechnology, the development and engineering of devices so small that they are measured on a molecular scale, has already demonstrated promising results in cancer research and treatment.

The NCI has invited experts from both the oncology and nanotechnology disciplines to brief reporters on the science, the issues, and the potential of the new NCI initiative, including:

Nanotechnology: what is it, how does it work, what’s the promise?

The intersection of nanotechnology and cancer today and tomorrow

Moving nanotechnology forward: the safety and ethical considerations

The nation’s commitment to nanotechnology
