The Caltech Effect: Fluid Dynamics and Delivery of Medicine to the Eye

– We are working with the study of drug delivery
process in the eye to figure out what is going
to be a more efficient way for the drugs that are being injected to be delivered to the back of the eye. We use a type of technique in our lab to visualize the fluid flow. This is your eye globe. In each quadrant, there is a
circulation that is going on. So, as you could imagine, that could definitely affect the path of drug delivery. If we can understand fluid dynamics better, we can also treat lots of diseases that are associated with the human body. I think Caltech is very special because we don’t have a medical school. The advantage is we can have
a number of collaborations with all the medical schools and medical institutes around us. (clapperboard clapping)
