Developing Alternative Administration Techniques for Therapeutics and Vaccines
Expanding the mechanisms for administering therapeutics and vaccines may have the potential to disrupt the status quo and improve availability and accessibility of therapeutic and preventive treatments. This session will explore opportunities for alternative delivery mechanisms and novel innovations which aim to provide alternative methods of administration, including micro-array patches and nasal and oral/sublingual administration.
Experts in the field will explore current innovations in the space, what the future may look like, and how novel administration methods may help overcome the logistical burden that is commonly associated with traditional techniques. New mechanisms can produce new challenges but may also have the potential to ease administration, reduce dosing requirements, improve stability, provide a slow release for greater efficacy, and ultimately improve availability of vaccines and therapeutics.
