In the not too distant future, our ability to measure very tiny things will change the way we fight diseases ranging from cancer to the common cold.

In the Future of Everything radio show, Stanford bioengineering Professor Russ Altman discusses how we will arrive at that point with Marc Salit, an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Bioengineering, who leads the Genome-Scale Measurements Group at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology.
