Gates Foundation funds innovative global health projects including sweat-triggered vaccine delivery using nanoparticles

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced a few days ago 78 grants of US$100,000 each for new innovative global health projects. Among those aiming at more effective vaccines, one involves nanoparticles : “Sweat-triggered vaccine delivery: Carlos Alberto Guzman of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Germany with Claus-Michael Lehr and Steffi Hansen of the Helmholtz-Institute for Pharmaceutical Research will develop nanoparticles that penetrate the skin through hair follicles and burst upon contact with human sweat to release vaccines.” (press release)
