About the author. The world is indeed getting smaller. The dimensions of nanotechnology are shrinking at a rather rapid rate. Consequently, more innovations are happening at the cellular, molecular, and even the atomic level. That's the definition of nanoscale: the science of manipulating materials on an atomic or molecular scale especially to build microscopic devices. As scientific understanding grows, it is now possible to create the smallest devices and applications to help in a variety of medical fields.
