“A tiny injectable sensor—that can be administered in a clinic without surgery—could make it easier for patients to follow a prescribed course of monitoring for extended periods of time,” Hall said in a statement. Hall is collaborating with Dr. Carla Marienfeld, an addiction psychiatrist at UC San Diego, and CARI Therapeutics, a startup that’s operating out of the university’s Qualcomm Institute.
