Webinars: Nanotechnology's contribution to eradicating diseases

(Nanowerk News) Poverty related diseases, such as Rotavirus, HIV, and TB are the scourge of developing communities, but research continues in the mission to find preventions, better diagnostics and cures. At the same time, cancer affects everyone in every community: patients, family members and carers. The potential of nanotechnology to assist in the eradication of such diseases is widely acknowledged, and this series of two webinars gives participants a unique opportunity to find out how nanotechnologies can help in this fight.
