Innovation Description

This team proposes to develop and test an innovative microarray patch to deliver a combination of antibiotics for the treatment of neonatal sepsis. An easy-to-use, less-invasive, affordable delivery method for amoxicillin and gentamicin could expand access to lifesaving outpatient antibiotic treatment for infants with severe infection during the neonatal period.
