NYU student invents wound-closing goo By BOB FREDERICKS
A brainy NYU student has cooked up a magic gel that he says can stop even heavy bleeding an invention that could make routine bandages obsolete.
Joe Landolina, 20, an Ulster County native and NYU junior, says his Veti-Gel almost instantly closes and begins healing even major wounds to internal organs and key arteries.
Theres really no way to quickly stop bleeding except to hold lots of gauze on a wound, Landolina told The Post. I thought if you could pour this gel into a wound, it would solidify and stop the bleeding.
Landolina, who is simultaneously pursuing a bachelors degree in biomolecular and chemical engineering and a masters in biomedical engineering, created the substance with Isaac Miller, a 2013 NYU grad.

NYC?? Bloomie will have him arrested for cruelty to rats, NYC’s official symbol.
This is a game changer discovery. Wounded soldiers all across the world could be saved from heretofore fatal wounds..........

It also stops cravings for sugary drinks over 16 oz!
A staple (no pun intended) of SciFi for years.. Scenes in Serenity come to mind.
NYU? Another intern from Kramerica Industries???
What happened to the last one was a shame..
Bullshit. This dude didn't do anything - the GOVERNMENT did it.
On instructions from their corporate masters who stand to lose business, the FDA will bury this invention.
If the govt did it, they can try to stop it...
Yep. I just watched Repo Men the other night and they were using a type of gel to seal wounds. Surprised they haven’t already done it.
Cyanoacrylate (super glue) was developed for this purpose as well.
I remember the look on my wires face when I sliced a finger open ( minor wound ) cutting up a potato and pulled out the Krazy Glue instead of a band aid.
That should be wifes. Stupid autocorrect.
Yes I remember reading something that krazy glue was invented during the Vietnam war to close wounds and I tried that on myself and it did work so I don’t know what different thing this kid came up with. He goes to NYU which is just about the most corrupt College in the country (which of course is run by leftists) so maybe they are once again trying to promote themselves with BS.
It amazes me the crap that school gets away with. For example people don’t know that NYU is *the* largest real estate owners in New York city. They own more real estate than anybody, and they’re a freakin’ school! Just about every building down there is owned by NYU and what they’ve been doing for the past 20-25 years is driving small businesses out by raising rents through the roof which is why you now see high end fashion stores all over the place, even in Little Italy. They get 50,000 new students every year that are charged $50k a year tuition (which is probably $60k now), not to mention all the money they get from real estate, and still the government gives them money. And what does the public get from it? Leftist agendas financed and private businesses destroyed.
Quick-Clot is already on the market, as well as others that are a powdery substance.
good thing you posted the correction. I thought it was "wives".
Good old fashioned Medicated Goo.
I'm not so sure about how 'revolutionary' this kids concept is.
Hubby's been using something called Liquid Bandage for years.
Use your apostrophe and it won’t do that. :0)
I saw a survivalist vid not long ago that advocated using tree sap to close wounds/stop bleeding if receiving a wound out in the wilderness.
