What Is This

A team of UCSB researchers, in collaboration with colleagues from UC Berkeley and StrataGent Life Sciences, of Los Gatos, California, has designed a novel pulsed microjet system engineered to deliver protein drugs into the skin without the pain or bruising that deeper penetration injection systems cause. The research was published in March in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. “The microjet system delivers precise doses into superficial skin layers, thereby mitigating pain,” says Samir Mitragotri, a professor of chemical engineering at UCSB and a lead author of the paper.
