How to layer like a street style pro

One of the most rev­o­lu­tion­ary med­i­cal ad­vance­ments in the last few years was ac­tu­ally an ac­ci­dent. “I was one of the first peo­ple to en­case pro­teins in­side of elec­tro­spun fi­bres. An in­quis­i­tive ex­plo­ration of what the novel ma­te­rial could do re­sulted in solv­ing a real-world prob­lem, namely de­liv­er­ing vac­cines in the form of a self-ad­min­is­tered skin patch,” Ka­sia Saw­icka, founder of Im­muno­Ma­trix, re­vealed. Say good­bye to painful nee­dles. Med­i­cal agents can be safely de­liv­ered to your body just by slap­ping Im­muno­Ma­trix onto your skin. Saw­icka has fi­nally per­fected the patch af­ter work­ing on it for a decade. The great­est ob­sta­cle now, ac­cord­ing to her, is ob­tain­ing funds to con­duct the clin­i­cal tri­als needed to ob­tain reg­u­la­tory ap­proval be­fore Im­muno­Ma­trix can be com­mer­cially avail­able.
