What if you could print your own medicine? Chemist Lee Cronin is working on a 3-D printer that, instead of objects, is able to print molecules that has the promising long-term application of enabling users to fabricate their own medicine using chemical inks. Cronin, a.professor of chemistry, nanoscience and chemical complexity, has been working with his research group to investigate how chemistry can revolutionize modern technology and even create life. Completely overturning the pharmaceutical industry’s model of business would be an intriguing, if disruptive, way to start.
