Description Fifty-ninth monthly installment of our "What A Year!" website project, introducing life science breakthroughs to middle and high school students and their teachers. When you take medicine orally, it affects all of the cells in your body. That´s great if the problem is everywhere in your body. But what if you only require the medicine in a specific area? Right now, the medicine goes to all the cells and not just the ones where it is needed. According to Dr. Steven Little, a researcher at the University of Pittsburgh, “The medicine of the future will be targeted so you get it where you need it and nowhere else.”
