Hebrew U team develops shape-shifting 3D printed pills for better targeted drugs
Shlomo Magdassi, head of The Hebrew University's 3D and Functional Printing Center Researchers at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem have developed a new way to create drug capsules using 3D printers, a step that will help pave the way for pills that can be tailored to perform better than the conventional capsules manufactured today. The custom-printed pills are made out of a hydrogel in which the medication is inserted, said Professor Shlomo Magdassi, head of the Hebrew University's 3D and Functional Printing Center, who developed the technology together with Dr. Ofra Benny, a researcher at Hebrew University's Institute for Drug Research.
