Injectable gels could release medicines over time | Stanford News

Stanford research could lead to injectable gels that release medicines over time. Injecting patients with a gel that would dissolve over several months could replace the need to administer daily or weekly shots. But to make this possible, researchers first had to create a Jello-like substance that could defy one of the fundamental laws of nature.
