Acronym IDMA-VAC (Reference Number: 11941)
Duration 01/03/2018
Project Topic The consortium will develop a novel microneedle array for intradermal vaccination (IDMA) to protect against pneumococcal infections (IDMA-VAC). The device consisting of atom-sharp microneedles will be tested to deliver an Outer Membrane Vesicle (OMV) based vaccine, which will allow vaccination with minimal pain and optimal precision at a low cost, providing broad protection.
