From Nanowerk news:

Professor Su-Il In’s research team from the Department of Energy Systems Engineering succeeded in developing porous acupuncture needles (hereafter PANs) that offer enhanced therapeutic properties by applying nanotechnology on the acupuncture needles for the first time in the world (Scientific Reports, “Hierarchical Micro/Nano-Porous Acupuncture Needles Offering Enhanced Therapeutic Properties”).

The findings of this experiment, which was conducted in collaboration with Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST)’s research team and the Addiction Control Research Center at Daegu Haany University, have attracted the attention of the relevant academic field in light of the fact that the experiment combined nanotechnology with acupuncture needles.
