Nano vaccines delivery via a “band-aid like” microneedle patch

Event Date(s): 02/12/2021

Vaccine technology is constantly evolving, and the next frontier is nanotechnology-based delivery. Researchers are working on new ways to deliver micro-particulate vaccines for both infectious and non-communicable diseases like cancer. This technology is also being applied to COVID-19. The Faculty of Medical Sciences has invited Dr. Martin J. D'Souza (Mercer University, Atlanta, GA, USA) to present his research on a low-cost, painless vaccine delivery method that will also include administering multiple vaccines via a microneedle vaccine patch similar to a "Band-Aid-like patch.". Join the lecture on Thursday,   December 2 from 12noon - 1 p.m. For more information please email  adpr.fms@sta.uwi.edu
