Robotic cells to fight cancer tumors

In the not too distant future, robotic cells may be able to target tumors, and maybe, even kill them. At UCSF, cellular engineer, Wendell Lim has discovered a way to get cells to act as robots. He reprograms them by changing their DNA, and the reprogrammed cells can be “trained” and to act as mules, carrying agents to precise locations.
