Nanotechnology has begun to play a key role in the detection and treatment of cancer. In this video, John C. Bischof, Distinguished McKnight University Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Minnesota, discusses how iron oxide and gold nanoparticles can be used to treat cancer.

Dr. Bischof earned a B.S in bioengineering with honors from the University of California at Berkeley in 1987, followed by a M.S. in the same field in 1989 and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering in 1992 from the same university. After spending a year as the John F. Burke Postdoctoral Fellow in Biomedical Science and Engineering in the Department of Surgery at Harvard Medical School, he joined the University of Minnesota.
