Video games used to study cancer treatments
from Laboratory Equipment
The cure for cancer comes down to this — video games. In a research lab at Wake Forest University, biophysicist and computer scientist Samuel Cho uses graphics processing units, the technology that makes videogame images so realistic, to simulate the inner workings of human cells. Now he can see exactly how the cells live, divide and die. And that, Cho says, opens up possibilities for new targets for tumor-killing drugs.
