A New York University student has invented a medical gel that could make conventional bandages obselete.
20-year-old Joe Landolina maintains that his remarkable Veti-Gel is capable of closing even the most heavily bleeding wounds almost instantly and even works with internal bleeding during surgical procedures.

Landolina is studying for a BSc in biomolecular and chemical engineering while at the same time pursuing a masterís in biomedical engineering.
