The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced backing for 78 science projects on Tuesday, including a vaccine triggered by human sweat and a laser vaccine.

The $34 billion Bill & Melinda Gates fund invests in scientific projects that are aimed at improving global health. Each of the 78 projects will receive a $100,000 grant for further study from the foundation.

The foundation’s Grand Challenges Explorations scheme awarded the grants as part of its five year, $100 million initiative to promote innovation in global health.
