New ‘Molecule-Making Machine’ Could Speed The Development Of Life-Saving Drugs – Huffington Post

3-D printing at a molecular level could lead to advances in drug development but not only…

A very interesting discovery made by Dr. Martin D. Burke, a professor of chemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign. Why is it a revolution?

The traditional way of synthesizing small molecules requires a step-by-step series of chemical reactions–a process that is time-consuming and which requires enormous expertise. The new printer simplifies the molecule-making process and makes it accessible to non-chemists.
