Narrative

Injectable hydrogels can be a depot for active vaccine components in the body and can release these components over time as the hydrogel degrades, providing sustained drug release and spatiotemporal control over the distribution of vaccines. The hydrogel components are separate in the syringe and crosslinked once in the body to form the gel. This piece of art shows the hydrogel components as separate in the syringe (red and blue) and as beginning to mix in the body as they crosslink to form the hydrogel (purple).
