Drugs printed by 3d printer

————————————————————–

Scientists believe they can print a prescription drug using a 3D printer.  Lee Cronin, a chemistry professor from the University of Glasgow mentioned in his Ted Talk that a 3D printer can assemble chemical compounds at a molecular level. Cronin said, “What Apple did for music, I’d like to do for the discovery and distribution of prescription drugs.”  According to Cronin, users would go to an online drugstore with their digital prescription, buy a “blueprint” and the chemical “ink” they need, and then print the drug at home with software and a 3D molecular printer.
