Inside Job

Biomedical engineers have developed a technology that aims to stop bleeding and control wound healing simply by injecting a gel at the site of an injury. These "injectable bandages" can simulate the structure of human tissues and facilitate healing via a controlled release of therapeutics -- it could save lives on the battlefield by preventing mortality due to hemorrhaging.
