  • Almost all currently used vaccines against COVID-19 consist of either non-viral or viral nanoparticles. Here we attempt to understand the reasons behind the success of such advanced nanoscale vaccine technologies compared with clinically established conventional vaccines, and the lessons to be learnt from this potentially transformative development in the adoption and acceptance of nanotechnology for medicine.

  • Sharing the step-by-step procedures necessary to fabricate nanostructures could optimize efforts to achieve reproducible devices.

    • Mohammad J. Bereyhi
    • Tobias J. Kippenberg
  • The FAIR principles provide compelling guidelines on how to achieve reusability of nanotechnology data.

  • The challenge of assessing the scope and magnitude of risk from nanomaterials is urgent for society and ignoring risks could be detrimental for development. This challenge is bigger than the individual capacities on each side of the Atlantic, but effective cross-Atlantic collaboration can solve essential riddles about the use of nanomaterials.

  • Research on nanoplastic has already provided some significant results but it has also exposed a large number of open questions.

When nanotechnology focuses on COVID-19

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
