Digital Conference: Corona Vaccine – Impact of Nanotechnology

The focus meeting will be held as a digital conference on November 24.

A virus the size of a few nanometers paralyzes the whole world. Biotech companies and pharmaceutical companies are working flat out to develop a vaccine against the new coronavirus Sars-CoV-2, driven by funds and the expectations of governments worldwide. With the event “Corona Vaccine – Impact of Nanotechnology” organized by NINa SH we would like to inform you about current activities and research from science and industry in the cross-sectional area of biotechnology and nanotechnology in vaccine development.

The presentations are each 25 minutes long. Subsequently the participants have the opportunity to ask questions.
