Check out Ben-Gurion University’s iGEM 2014 research project, the Inner Doctor. They are designing a nano-scale inner doctor to help address the metabolic syndrome, a worldwide problem present in 1 out of 4 adults. The condition is characterized by obesity, high blood sugar, insulin resistance and other symptoms that can lead to an increased risk of stroke and heart disease. The inner doctor will help patients suffering from the metabolic syndrome by examining the concentration of bio-molecules in cells and promoting healthy cellular activity based on specific patient measurements.
