I attended the October 25, 2019 meeting of IACT at Fairfield University where Professor Robert Langer of MIT spoke. Professor Langer gave a wonderful talk about his successes in combining engineering with medical treatment and cures. In general, he was one of the first to combine the use of medicines in biodegradable plastics as a way to transmit medicines to humans. Professory Langer has an incredible 1360 issued patents and pending applications in his name! More information can be found here.
