A group of researchers are developing novel methods of delivering medicine into the body.

An experimental new method of delivering medicine into the body is being worked on by a group of researchers from GlaxoSmithKline, the University of Leeds and Durham University.

The group has taken printing as a model of inspiration, and they're developing a method of simply printing medicine directly onto the surface of pills. This will make the drugs faster acting, and open up the possibility of printing multiple kinds of medicine onto just one pill.
