IBM Improves Nanomeds to Better Than Antibiotics
Dean Takahashi, Venture Beat
In 2011, IBM researchers and a research group in Singapore showed off a new kind of synthetic, biodegradable nano particle that doctors could use to attack bacteria cells that are resistant to antibiotics. Now, the same group of researchers have made the “nanomedicine” much more practical by delivering it in the form of a cream or gel that you can rub on wounds or inject into infected regions.
Call them nanomeds. They could save your life one day.
