I study computer science but for a few months now have been gaining interest in nanotechnology and how it can be used to treat cancer. Is this an interest I should keep up and if I wanted to learn more about it where would be the best place to start learning from the ground up?

Have whatever side interests you want, knowing stuff is cool.

If you're at uni you could see if ur library's got any related resources on the topic.

I've got a lot of friends interested in nanotech.
Nothing weird.
There seems to be a lot of potential uses in medical treatment, health diagnosis, engineering and environmentalism.

Not as weird as my side interest of cracking one out to pictures of bowel operations.

Yeah it just seems so facinating as it truly seems like the best thing to research into for treating cancer

Nanotechnology is cool af! That's definitely an interest that's going to be very valuable to have knowledge of in the not so distant future
Have you read the books Micro and Prey by Michael Crichton? They're fiction but both heavily involve a lot of science and the use of nanotechnology in a fairly realistic way, Prey more so than Micro.
Prey is about nanotech with artificial intelligence and it's use in genetic engineering whilst Micro is about nanotech being used in the medical world
If you're interested in nanotechnology then I'd definitely recommend you read them

Siiiiick thanks for the recommendations, the problem i was having was knowing where to start off with. But i think i will just check a bunch of books out including the ones u just recommended and then just start reading one of them which i am most interested in

No, don't worry! It's really random and uninteresting, you're not missing out on much
Back at you!
Yeah, that's really cool! If it interests you then go for it!

I'm also interested in nanotechnologies. I always check articles in international scientific journals and I don't see anything wrong with that. Now so long ago I found info about MST Nanomaterials Research & Nanomaterials Production company, they are international leading nanomaterials producers and researchers of this material of the new generation high-tech materials on the market. I think with their help nanotechnology will change the way engineers solve problems in the future.
