HZDR Clip for the Short Film Festival "Nanospots" (in German)


Nanosized particles are already in use for several industrial applications. But in the future they could also be very important in medical fields: Scientists of the Institute of Radiopharmaceutical Cancer Research at HZDR are investigating ways to use those particles for transporting drugs within the human body and using them as probes.

The HZDR scientists Julia Hesse und Katrin Taetz have produced this clip about nano particles in cancer research for the „Nanospots 2012" short film festival, where it got to the top ten of all clips.
