Researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) have developed a microsize-gap multiple-shot electroporation (M2E) device that could improve the effectiveness of delivering cancer drugs at a lower cost, globally.

“One of the goals of the scientific community is to develop a method for cancer drug delivery that is simple, manufacturable and low-cost,” said Desmond Loke, an assistant professor at SUTD and principal investigator of this research.
