CUHK Develops Biohybrid Soft Microrobots with a Rapid Endoluminal Delivery Strategy for Gastrointestinal (GI) Diseases
13 Apr, 2021

A collaborative research team led by Professor Li ZHANG from the MAE Department, Faculty of Engineering, Professor Joseph Jao-yiu SUNG and Professor Philip Wai-yan CHIU from the Faculty of Medicine at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has developed biohybrid soft microrobots with an endoscopy-assisted magnetic navigation strategy for rapid endoluminal delivery. This work provides a new enabling technology for medical microrobot-based minimally invasive intervention and has the potential for treating various diseases in tiny and tortuous lumens which are hard-to-reach or inaccessible by regular medical devices.
