Description From our What A Year! series: "Magnetic heating on the micro level is the focus of new research by an interdisciplinary team of scientists led by Dr. P. Jack Hoopes of Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH. It has been known for several decades that tissues with slightly elevated temperatures respond better to radiation and chemotherapy, the mainstays of modern cancer treatments. Dr. Hoopes’ research uses nanotechnology to harness magnetic heating on a microscopic scale, producing novel therapies that could be used together with existing cancer treatments."
