Event: Press Conference on “‘Magic’ spray that creates bio-med millirobots for precise drug delivery”
Date: 20 November 2020 (Friday)
Time: 2:30 pm
Venue: Room G7603, Green Zone, Yeung Kin Man Academic Building, City University of Hong Kong (CityU) (Lift #2)
A pioneering approach for the creation of a “magic” spray that turns objects into agile millirobots for the precise delivery of drugs inside a living body has been developed in joint research led by a scientist from City University of Hong Kong (CityU). A magnetic force can move an object around different surfaces after it has been sprayed with this magic spray. This technology has great potential for biomedical applications, including catheter navigation and precise drug delivery.
Dr Shen Yajing, Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at CityU and leader of the project, will elaborate on the new technology and its applications, followed by a demonstration of the millirobots moving on different surfaces.
