Nanotechnology in Battle Against Coronavirus

Since the outbreak began in late 2019, researchers have been racing to learn more about SARS-CoV-2, a virus strain from the coronavirus family named for its crown-like shape.

Northeastern chemical engineer Thomas Webster, who specializes in developing Nano-scale medicine and technology to treat diseases, is part of a team of scientists assisting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in their fight against the COVID-19 outbreak.

Webster's reasoning for using nanoparticles is that the virus causing COVID-19 has a structure on a similar scale to his nanoparticles. Matter is ultra-small at that scale, about ten thousand times smaller than the width of a single strand of hair.

Webster proposes similar-sized particles that could attach to SARS-CoV-2 viruses and disrupt their structure using a combination of infrared light treatment. This structural change would then prevent the virus from surviving and reproducing in the body.
