Description

A nanofiber-based biodegradable millirobot, called “Fibot”, was successfully developed in research led by a scholar from City University of Hong Kong (CityU). Fibot can move in the intestines and degrade in response to the pH of its environment, thus releasing different drugs in different anchored positions.
