(credit: GoogleX) The lead researcher, Dr. Andrew Conrad, said that part of detecting disease is getting a clear picture of how a healthy body works. The man in control of the study is Dr. Andrew Conrad of Google X, but Google is not conducting the experiment alone: Duke University and Stanford University medical schools are working closely with the search giant to design the experiments and study the data. The study will be run by a doctor at a medical clinic who will be acting as the principle investigator - similar to the professors and doctors that oversee scientific and medical projects in academic labs that employ PhD students - despite Conrad leading the project from Google's end. Google has built a team of around 100 scientists, including Conrad, who was the chief scientific officer of a diagnostics lab firm LabCorp, and Dr. Vikram Bajaj, a biochemist and chemical physicist who moved from University California Berkeley.


Google[x] Reveals Nano Pill To Seek Out Cancerous Cells - AgeMarker.com

Google's head of life sciences, Andrew Conrad, took to the stage at the Wall Street Journal Digital conference to reveal that the tech giant's secretive Google[x] lab has been working on a wearable device that couples with nanotechnology to detect disease within the body.
Conrad said, "Nano particles are the nexus between biology and engineering-we can tell them what we want them to do. Imagine you want to explore Parisian culture, and you do it by flying a helicopter over Paris once a year-that is what doctors do now. What we are hoping to do is to send nano-particles to mingle with 'the people' (through the bloodstream)-and then call them back to one place, and ask them, 'what did you see?'" "We're passionate about switching from reactive to proactive and we're trying to provide the tools that make that feasible," explained Conrad. "Think of it as sort of like a mini self-driving car," Conrad simplified with a clear reference to Google[x]'s vehicular project. "We can make it park where we want it to. Conrad went on with the car theme, saying the body is more important than a car and comparing our present healthcare system as something that basically only tries to change our oil after we've broken down. "We wouldn't do that with a car," he added. According to Conrad, we'd simply swallow a pill and monitor for disease on a daily basis. We'd also be able to upload that data into the cloud and send it to our doctor. "So your doctor could say well for 312 days of this year everything looks good but these past couple of months we're detecting disease," Conrad said. Privacy and security, particularly in health care is essential. Google came under fire in the last couple of years for handing over information to the U.S. government. Conrad was quick to mention that a partner, not Google would be handling individual data. "It'd be like saying GE is in control of your x-ray. We are the creators of the tech and they are the disseminators," Conrad clarified. The U.S. government has an active interest in this space, as well. It's invested over $20 billion in nanotechnology research since 2013. This project is in the exploratory phases, but Conrad was hopeful that we'd be seeing this technology in the hands of every doctor within the next decade. He also mentioned that his team has explored ways of not just detecting abnormal cells but also delivering medicine at the same time. "That's certainly been discussed," he said, but cautioned that this was something that needed to be carefully developed so that the nanoparticles had a chance to show what was happening in the body before destroying the cells. So far 100 Google employees with expertise in astrophysics, chemistry and electrical engineering have taken part in the nanoparticle project. "We're trying to stave off death by preventing disease. Our foe is unnecessary death," Conrad added.
