When nanotechnology focuses on COVID-19

In face of the coronavirus pandemic, the nanotechnology community has joined forces to provide tools and expertise to COVID-19 research efforts. Long-term experience in drug delivery, nanovaccines, immunoengineering, biosensors and platform technologies positions nanotechnology in a unique place to tackle some of the key issues in preclinical and clinical COVID-19 research
