Naturally magnetic bacteria is a promising cancer therapy

The bacteria, which contain magnetic structures, was discovered in 1975. Interest has grown in harnessing naturally occurring cancer treatments as microbots possessing enhanced targeting abilities. In a related study published in Science Robotics, a team of scientists from ETH Zurich uses the native magnetic properties of Magnetospirillum bacteria to decimate tumors. Harnessing nature Magnetospirillum magneticum is a highly evolved …
