Investigation of sugar-membrane vaccine stabilisation for improved vaccine thermostability and delivery

Vaccines and other biomolecules need to be maintained at specified storage temperatures from manufacture through to their end user. To satisfy this requirement an enormous network of fridges and freezers called the "cold chain" throughout the world must exist. This network may account for up to 80% of the total cost of vaccination and is susceptible to failure causing loss of vaccines.
