Mark Kendall, an Australian bio-engineer, is developing a “Nanopatch” to replace needles in vaccination. The technology has the potential to save millions of lives in the developing world by making the process painless, safer, cheaper and more effective.

The traditional syringe-and-needle method of vaccination is expensive due to the need to keep the vaccines inside the “cold chain”. Professor Kendall’s patch is coated with dry vaccine so no refrigeration is needed.
