Abstract:
    Targeted drug delivery are of great importance as enables concentrated delivery Drug Compound to its desire target, increasing the efficiency of the drug as well reducing off target effects
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Our battery is inexpensive. The Material which we are using i.e. Silk is readily available and battery will be programmed for efficient targeted drug delivery. It will be used specially for cancer and Chronic Diseases where targeted drug delivery is necessary in order to avoid side effects of drug.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Targeted Drug delivery is mostly used for Chronic Diseases and for cancer patients. So the surgeon needs this battery for their treatment
How will the solution works
    Our battery will basically power the Edible Robots and also the insulin pumps and infusion pumps. using Artificial Intelligence our battery will be programmed according to the schedule of the drug and concentration of the drug to be provided Silk is composed of amino acid connected together with hydrogen bonding. Silk will be used as an electrode active material. As silk is bio friendly and biodegradable. That
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    There were other batteries made using zinc and silicon based but we will be using Biodegradable material(silk) for our battery which is body compatible and also it is very cost effective as well
