DIY Drugs with 3D Printing.

3D printing sites, medical sites and even many general audience sites have been abuzz this week over an article released from the University of Glasgow entitled,DIY drugstores in development at the University of Glasgow. Now that’s an article title that’s guaranteed to get attention! This subject went a bit viral with some pretty creative titles on some of the articles, ones that I’m sure would have certainly gotten Timothy Leary’s attention if he were alive today.

This new 3D printing process is being developed by Professor Lee Cronin, Gardiner Chair of Chemistry at the University of Glasglow. He says that the research he and his team are doing could eventually lead to “home chemical fabricators” with which anyone could design and create medicine in their homes. He wrote up the process in a research paper titled ‘Integrated 3D-printed reactionware for chemical synthesis and analysis,’ published in the journal, Nature Chemistry.
