Advanced medicine often depends on delivering a very precise dose of a drug to a very precise location in the body. The technology already exists for creating extremely small, precisely-sized nanoparticles of liquid, but to put these tiny droplets to any practical use, scientists have to be able to manufacture a lot of them efficiently. Penn researchers are now developing a new technique to expand the production of nanoparticles to an industrial scale.
Although this technology is being developed for purposes of medical treatments, potential applications include agriculture, cosmetics, and more.
