3D-printed water-in-water constructs mimic cell compartmentalization with potential in drug delivery
Maryam Mahdi | | Quick Read
A project funded by the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) has resulted in a material system that could be used to deliver medicine, treat wounds, and purify water for soldiers in the field. Developed at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the eco-friendly, synthetic system mimics biological transport and compartmentalization in cells by creating a structured water-in-water environment using water soluble and oppositely-charged polyelectrolytes (1) – with targeted drug delivery presented as one potential application.
