$3.5m development to make needles a thing of the past
Vaccinations are set to become a lot less painful, with Queensland researchers awarded a $1,240,519 Innovation Projects Fund grant to develop a "nanopatch" to deliver vaccines.
When all other partner funding is included, the total project involves an overall investment of $3.5 million.
"The patch will contain very tiny projections (micro-nanoprojections) that when applied to the skin will deliver the vaccine to the target cells below the surface," says Premier Peter Beattie.
