Ted Talks – Jorge Soto: The Future of Early Cancer Detection

Jorge Soto, along with a team of scientists and technologists have come up with a non-invasive way to test for cancer. The test harnesses real time technology such as smart phones and 3-D printers. It requires only one millilitre of blood. So far, the test has successfully identified pancreatic, lung, and breast cancer and costs 50 times less than current available methods. Currently Soto and his team are working with the German Cancer Research Centre to conduct a trial on 200 women for breast cancer. Watch the inspiring talk here:
