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.
