The future of diagnosing disease: New American Chemical Society Prized Science video
Date:9/18/2012

WASHINGTON, Sept. 18, 2012 Providing patients with faster diagnoses for influenza and other respiratory infections and new tests that improve care for heart disease is among the topics in the latest episode of the 2012 edition of a popular video series from the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world's largest scientific society. The videos are available at www.acs.org/PrizedScience and on DVD.

Titled Prized Science: How the Science Behind American Chemical Society Awards Impacts Your Life, the second episode of the 2012 series features the research of Chad Mirkin, Ph.D., winner of the 2012 ACS Award for Creative Invention. He is a professor at Northwestern University. The award recognizes Mirkin's research, which has provided patients with faster diagnoses for influenza and other respiratory infections and new tests that improve care for heart disease. The diagnostic devices use so-called nanoparticlessmall pieces of gold so small that 10 could fit across the width of a human hair. The nanoparticles have a shell of DNA on them and that helps them make accurate and specific diagnoses. The devices are cleared for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and are currently used in hospitals around the world.

The premiere episode of Prized Science featured Robert Langer, Sc.D., winner of the 2012 ACS Priestley Medal. The video explains Langer's pioneering work making body tissues in the lab by growing cells on special pieces of plastic. Langer's team has used the approach to make skin for burn patients, for instance, with the goal of eventually making whole organs for transplantation.
