Motherboard reports on the pioneering work of biomedical engineer Robert Langer, and his latest work on an implantable chip that can hold hundreds of doses of drugs and be activated by remote control.
“The chips Langer and his team are working on are around two centimetres squared and contain up to 1,000 tiny ‘wells’ you can put different drugs in, each with a little cover,” reports Motherboard. “As the covers are removed, the drug is released. You could put 1,000 doses of the same drug in to be released over time, or different ones.”
