The first in a series of interviews with researchers and medical doctors, the Arthroplasty Patient Foundation explores biofilms and their contribution to medical device failures and related chronic health issues. Dr. Webster’s full interview can be read here.


Dr. Thomas Webster speaks about nano-technology in medicine for Northeastern’s Institutional Accomplishments.

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.

Nanomedicine has already revolutionized medicine, yet, we still find us asking the question “why”. In this video, Dr. Thomas J. Webster (Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Nanomedicine, Northeastern University, USA) describes why (scientifically) nanomedicine has helped to treat numerous diseases.
