    There have been some stories in the news lately about using focused ultrasound and collapsing bubbles to open the blood-brain barrier and deliver drugs to treat a brain tumour. e.g. here

    I was actually involved in the early stages of this project, working on theory and simulations. I wrote a post about the project and my work in it.
