Microfluidic encapsulation for subcutaneous delivery of viscous drugs
Antibodies and other biopharmaceuticals have emerged as a powerful new class of drugs for treating diseases that range from rheumatoid arthritis to breast cancer to macular degeneration. However, these large, protein-based molecules cannot be taken orally (the stomach would digest them) and are frequently given at high concentrations. Most are administered intravenously, but that approach...

The unique structures and functions of biological materials arise from the unique processes of patterning and rearrangement they employ – namely morphogenesis. Esser-Kahn seeks to mimic the structures formed by biological systems by mimicking the process which forms them. He will detail his initial efforts to develop a simple synthetic morphogenetic system that repatterns microvascular... Free and open to public
