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

    Editorial
  • To achieve the biggest impact, nanotechnology-based strategies developed to manage infectious diseases in resourced-limited settings need to take into account the local context.

    Editorial
  • We have launched a series of webinars to engage our audience in a way that is complementary to the publication of articles.

    Editorial
  • Flexibly designed nanomaterials can trigger specific immune responses and might offer promising alternatives to traditional immunosuppressive therapies, cancer immunotherapies and vaccine formulations.

    Editorial
  • Two nanoparticle-based vaccines close to obtaining approval by the US Food and Drug Administration could represent a giant step in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Editorial
  • Although the idea of using nanomaterials for agriculture is promising, we must consider in detail how nanotechnology can provide advantages over standard tools.

    Editorial
  • Two studies on sub-micrometre plastic particles provide evidence of plastic accumulation in terrestrial plants.

    Editorial
  • In the face of the coronavirus pandemic, it is time for the nanotechnology community to shine and build on its experience with nanoscale materials and drug delivery to provide knowledge and tools for COVID-19 vaccine and therapeutics development.

    Editorial
  • Data-centric computation and the scalability limits of current computing systems call for the developments of alternative to von Neumann architecture.

    Editorial
  • The efforts to develop electron lens systems that can achieve atomic resolution in transmission electron microscopy have been awarded the most prestigious accolade dedicated to nanoscience.

    Editorial
  • The identification and isolation of individuals with COVID-19 can help to flatten the epidemic curve and win us time to wait for the vaccine development and production, and antiviral drug therapies.

    Editorial
  • The addition of carbon nanotubes to the SIN (‘Substitute It Now’) list has evoked reactions from nanomedicine and nanotoxicology researchers, who ask for a fairer and more recent research-based risk assessment of carbon nanotubes.

    Editorial
  • Nature Nanotechnology will work with authors and reviewers to establish the best practises to make data available and usable by a wide scientific community.

    Editorial
  • We reflect on the major role played by Nano Letters in nanoscience and nanotechnology and celebrate the appointment of its new editor-in-chief.

    Editorial
  • Results from new artificial water channels for desalination show the importance of exploring alternative solutions to simply optimizing existing technologies.

    Editorial
  • The cancer nanomedicine field is heading in two directions — debating whether the clinical translation of nanomaterials should be accelerated or whether some of the long-standing drug delivery paradigms have to be challenged first.

    Editorial
  • The coordinating role of the National Nanotechnology Initiative will be essential for the development of research at the nanoscale in the next decades.

    Editorial
  • After 15 years of intensive academic research, graphene is getting ready to morph into a marketable technology.
