Sciencemag Covers MucoJet: High-pressure spray delivers vaccines directly into cheek

In March of 2017, Jon Cohen of Sciencemag published an article highlighting Dr. Aran’s work in the creation of Mucojet.

Unlike injected vaccines, administering this “microjet vaccination” requires no particular skill. The researchers also contend that the capsule-shaped device, which they call MucoJet, triggers unique immune responses that neither oral nor injected vaccines can produce. “We can actually reach immune cells in the oral cavity,” says team member Kiana Aran, a bioengineer at the Keck Graduate Institute in Claremont, California.
