These UWindsor researchers are working to develop a device to detect and treat brain cancer

What you see here is, is a chip that has about 20 little subunits and every single unit that you see on here would be one of the sensors that I'm talking about. So the sensor will be implanted in the brain and as soon as there will be a molecule associated to brain cancer, it will trigger the sensor. The sensor will turn on and then it will trigger the degradation of the plastic. In the plastic we will put drugs. So the plastic will degrade, release the drugs and hopefully treat the cancer as soon as we have that first molecule. Recognized by our detector only, brain cancer is really infiltrative, so naturally removing it is very challenging. There's always residual brain cancer cells remaining so, and this is really difficult for someone to access that cancer because of course of the nature of the cancer in the brain itself. So having that technology, being able to do kind of all the work by itself without having to have a pair of hands playing around in the brain is massive. I just hope that it's going to give someone the piece of mind that as soon as there is a molecular signature of the cancer coming back. That we have a tool to really eradicate it right away, but this is hopefully how like a full chip out made of all of these little sensors would look like. To be implanted in one's brain. Basically. This is really the 1st generation of what we envision as the actual working device. Really sometimes difficult to get the technology adopted by surgeon by patients. So will someone will want to have these technologies in their brain. So there's a big part of the grant that will go. Survey surgeons serving patients and clinician and cancer experts and patients and try to understand what could be the barriers for them to not adopt the technology. So we're at the stage where we combine our expertise. We have all the pieces already there, we just need to combine and work together to make it happen.
