Looking back over 2020: an A–Z of nanotechnological research

Written by Alice Bough (Future Science Group), Ilana Landau (Future Science Group)

As 2020 comes to a close, we have collated an A–Z of some of the key research topics and developments from the nanomedicine and nanotechnology fields that we have covered and brought to you in Nanomedicine the journal, and on The Nanomed Zone, this year. Alzheimer’s disease This year has seen advances in the use of nanomedicine to potentially diagnose and treat Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers have reported that gold nanoparticles can be used for the visualization of amyloid fibrils via cryo-EM while a large range of magnetic nanoparticles have shown promise as MRI contrast agents for identifying Alzheimer’s-related pathologies. One...
