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...

Video/AnimationAerial-Aquatic MicrorobotInspired by insects, researchers at the Wyss Institute and Harvard SEAS have developed a robot capable of flying…and swimming. Once the robot swims to the surface of the water, surrounding water is collected in a buoyancy chamber. Within the chamber, an electrolytic plate produced oxyhydrogen. This gives the robot extra buoyancy, which enables it to...
