Research Horizons - Med Device - vaccine-delivery patch

The vaccine-delivery patch (left), based on hundreds of microscopic needles that dissolve into the skin, could allow individuals without medical training to painlessly administer vaccines. The hollow microneedle (right) is designed to effectively deliver drugs to the back of the eye. This device could benefit individuals with retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration.
