Please Pass the Nano Control!

This is just crazy amazing:
Medical researchers from Keele University and Nottingham University have found that magnetic nanoparticles coated with targeting proteins can stimulate stem cells to regenerate bone. Researchers were also able to deliver the cells directly to the injured area, remotely controlling the nanoparticles to generate mechanical forces and maintain the regeneration process through staged releases of a protein growth stimulant. 
The potential medical breakthroughs involving nanotechnology are both myriad and mind-boggling, as the case above shows.  For more such examples, click here and here. [ht:]
