This mock journal cover was completed for an editorial illustration
assignment in MSC2003Y, Biomedical Communications Technology. Nanotechnology is a field of intense interest in cancer treatment, as it potentially allows the mechanical manipulation of cells from the inside.
Recently, researchers successfully developed a way to internalize and acoustically control gold nanomotors within living HeLa cervical cancer cells. This editorial illustration was designed to evoke this newfound ability by depicting a HeLa cell, nanomotors being manipulated by strings, and the researcher as a metaphorical puppeteer.
