I rarely post about new pharmaceutical technology...but this is nothing less than miraculous.
Read the article linked above. This new technology enables researchers to synthesize and analyze 40,000 molecules in a bubble smaller than the head of a pin.
This will accelerate vaccine and pharmaceutical development by a factor of one million. This should also make the R&D cheaper, and far less wasteful of energy, materials, time and labor and therefore the cost of medicines should drop significantly. That should make all our lives better, and hopefully longer.
Just imagine how many lives will be saved.
