Your gifts to the Biodesign Center for Molecular Design and Biomimetics give scientists resources to discover breakthroughs in human health, national security and energy by designing material at the molecular level that mimics our body’s biochemical processes.

Scientists like Hao Yan, who is on a mission to seek and destroy cancer cells. Yan, a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at ASU, helped build a microscopic robot 1,000 times thinner than a human hair that finds and kills cancerous tumors in the bloodstream. This breakthrough in nanomedicine showed promising early results, doubling the survival rate in mice with cancer.

When you give to the Center for Molecular Design and Biomemetics, you enable creative thinkers like Yan to create solutions that lead to better health and safety.

“You can consider me a molecular artist,” says Hao Yan. See how his artistry — in the form of nanorobots — is helping to cure cancer.
