Argonne nanoscientist Elena Rozhkova will be tweeting from @Argonne Monday, June 11, at 1 p.m. CDT / 2 p.m. EDT in the Department of Energy's #LabChat "Science of the Very Fast and Very Small."

Rozhkova and her team are studying ways to enlist nanoparticles to treat brain cancer. This nano-bio technology may eventually provide an alternative form of therapy that targets only cancer cells and does not affect normal living tissue. Ask her questions about building materials atom by atom, the role of nanotechnology in diagnostic and therapeutic technology, or ‘liquid armor.’ Dr. Rozhkova talks more about her field and discoveries in the Lab Breakthroughs video and Q&A: Nanomaterials Discoveries Lead to Possible Cancer Treatment.
