Millennium Technology Prize

Millennium Technology Prize Awarded to Professor Robert Langer for Intelligent Drug Delivery

The youtube video on this site interviewing Dr. Langer is cool… he shows how drug delivery via polymers is now leading to precise targeting of drugs down to the unicellular level and enabling release of drugs controlled by human-embedded microprocessors.

In choosing his career in 1974, he blew off the oil companies and talks about how his first boss liked to hire unusual people. He invented 200 ways that it didn’t work for every 1-2 successful ways that did.
