Expanding the Utility of Silk Fibroin Microneedles: An Investigation of Device and Fabrication Process Improvements for Transdermal Vaccination and Broader Applications.

Stinson, Jordan.


  • Abstract: Thin-film microneedle patches have emerged as an exciting alternative to hypodermic needles as they offer a simple, minimally-invasive approach to drug and vaccine delivery. Despite extensive research, many materials chosen for use in microneedle patches limit the total device scope through poor processing, stability, or mechanical properties. Silk fibroin protein from Bombyx mori ... read more
