Nanotechnology Research Focuses on Drug-Free Way to Prevent Viruses and Bacterial Infections

In this video, Tom Webster, Professor and Department Chair, Chemical Engineering, and Art Zafiropoulo Chair in Engineering, discusses Northeastern’s nanotechnology research that could sometime in the not so distance future create nanoparticles that can infiltrate a bacteria or attach to a virus to render it useless, without vaccinations and other drugs, and without mutating strains impacting the effectiveness.
