NanoEngineering Professors Joseph Wang and Liangfang Zhang Develop Microscopic Submarines to Treat Stomach Diseases

NanoEngineering Chair Dr. Joseph Wang and Dr. Liangfang Zhang lead a team of professors by introducing a novel approach for the neutralization of gastric acid.

The “submarines” speed through the stomach and release their cargo when the required pH levels are reached in order to treat stomach diseases. This approach also aims to avoid side-effects along with acting as a drug transport mechanism.
