Vaccination has saved more lives than any other medical advancement, but traditional methods of vaccine delivery are fast becoming outdated in our technological age. Dr Christine Rollier, James Martin Fellow on the Oxford Martin Programme on Vaccines will look at new methods of vaccine delivery technology that promise cheaper, safer and pain free implementation. Christine will be joined by Dr Pawan Dulal, a researcher in the Vaccine Delivery Technologies group at the Jenner Institute, who is developing a technology to render vaccines thermo-stable, a process that could revolutionise the global distribution of vaccine technology.
