Johan Labuschagne Virus as vehicle for implant

Very close to the idea of "Gene Therapy" where a "normal" gene is inserted into the genome; however this "nono-reactors" do not correcting defective genes, but rather chang properties of current "normal" genes.
This "nano-reactors" could be a inbetween step for the current opsticals that Gene Therapy faces.

Gene therapy potentially represents one of the most important developments to occur in medicine - See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gene_therapy

Doug Vining Wireless insulin control in future

How about controlling your genetic and molecular functions, in your body, wirelessly, without bionic implants? That sounds like real science fiction, but is now certainly a possibility.

Researchers can now control insulin in mice, with cells 'upgraded' with nano particles. The business opportunities for the future of this technology are immense!

Wolfgang Grulke How IT has changed Biology and Medicine

Interesting video on how the evolution of Information Technology has changed these industries, from the invention of the transistor in 1947, the mainframe computer, the development of cheaper computers and the resulting democratization of information technology, the printer, and finally 3D printing.
