Ever since reading Michio Kaku's book Physics of the Future, I have been excited by the possibility of the early detection of cancer with sensors in our homes. I want to go out and read as much of the literature available about the different potential and confirmed biomarkers for cancer. Along with that I want to learn how those biomarkers are detected and asses whether an automated system could be discretely placed in a house to automatically detect it. If an automated detection system can not yet be made I want to assess how long until that is possible.
Initially, I was not going to post this project here since it is very theoretical at the moment, but then I decided that the category of a Researching Project is appropriate. The projects photo is from the NIH and can be found here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nihgov/40379829875.
