The worldwide outbreak of COVID-19 in now well into its second year.

Nanotechnology is in the forefront of combating COVID.Lipid nanoparticles are essential components of mRNA vaccines. Nanomaterials are enabling improved detection techniques, and novel therapies.

At this symposium academic and industrial researchers will present pathbreaking nanotechnology-based work focused on addressing the threat of COVID-19.

Topics will include nanotechnology to manufacture COVID mRNA vaccines, create novel nanomaterial decoy therapies, enhance molecular detection of viruses, and simulate nanostructured COVID proteins. The event will provide opportunities for attendees to network and actively engage with the speakers.
