This book chapter describes an investigation that models one approach to treating cancer that uses gold nanoshells to locate and destroy cancer. Students are given a scenario about a cancer patient and do an experiment with gel substances to show how the cancer is isolated and destroyed. Excellent background information is given in the article.
