MIT develops thin-film 'micro pharmacy'

I always love seeing innovations pour out of my alma mater. A new thin-film coating developed at MIT can deliver controlled drug doses to specific targets in the body following implantation, essentially serving as a "micro pharmacy."

The film, which is typically about 150 nanometers (billionths of a meter) thick, can be implanted in specific parts of the body.
