New nanoparticles wait to release drugs, target infection – Researchers from Washington State University

Current WSU research shows stimuli-responsive nanoparticles can specifically target infections to simultaneously prevent the spread of bacteria and reduce the inflammation it causes. These microscopic particles are loaded with antibiotic and anti-inflammatory agents which are released when the particles encounter infection in the body. Researchers in the lab of Pharmaceutical Sciences Assistant Professor Zhenjia Wang

3-D printed models created by Stanford School of Medicine that will improve medical student training

According to a study presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology’s 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting , an inexpensive 3-D-printed model of a patient’s blood vessels is as effective as current commercially available models for training medical students in interventional radiology vascular access. “We’ve come up with a viable method for creating something that’s inexpensive and
