The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases awarded Inovio Pharmaceuticals a $3.5 million grant to further develop a next-generation DNA vaccine delivery device that can simultaneously administer multiple synthetic vaccines through skin surface electroporation. The device is being co-developed with Chief Scientist Connie Schmaljohn of the Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. The goal is to create a device that will allow fast vaccination of U.S. troops and protect the public from pandemic threats.
