Insulin Via Nanobot

A positively-charged material found in shrimp shells (and initially pressed into service in self-healing car paint) is attracted to a negatively-charged seaweed derivative. These materials are applied to nanoparticles to help them find each other after they are injected into the bloodstream. These nanoparticles form a nano-network—the particles have a solid core of insulin and can accurately mete out insulin doses over a period of 10 days, saving diabetes sufferers from overly frequent injections and the possibility of inaccurate dosing.
