Research title: Transdermal microneedles for insulin delivery
Transdermal microneedle is an alternative approach to deliver small and large molecular weight compounds into the skin in a minimally invasive manner. The aim of my PhD research involves the development of insulin coated microneedles as well its characterization, in vitro studies and in vivo clinical trials.
