Physicists developed self-propelled droplets that can act as programmable micro-carriers

In the life sciences, researchers are working to inject drugs or other molecules into a human body using tiny ‘transport vehicles.’ Researchers have shown in a model system that small emulsion droplets can be used as smart carriers. They have developed a method for producing self-propelled liquid droplets capable of providing spatially and temporally controlled delivery of a ‘molecular load’.
