Title : Beating COVID with nano chemistry
COVID-19 has stopped our normal way of life across all parts of the world. This presentation will cover how nano materials are being used to help prevent, detect, and treat COVID. Specifically, it will cover how self-assembled materials can be formulated to bind to regions of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID) to keep it from attaching to mammalian cells, entering mammalian cells, and replicating. It will emphasize targeting regions of SARS-CoV-2 in therapeutics that have not been mutating, thus, providing a versatile technique to fight COVID. Further, it will demonstrate how such nanomaterials can be used to improve the detection of SARS-CoV-2 as well as prevention. It will include a wide range of research from scientists all over the world, including in vitro and in vivo analysis, and discuss how such nano chemistries can better prepare us for future pandemics.
