Dual Use of Nanobiotechnology Delivery Technologies

‘Science-Fiction versus Science-Fact – Nanobiotechnology Applications for Delivery’ was the title of Dr Steffi Friedrichs’ presentation at the 2020 UNIDIR Innovation Dialogues – Life Sciences, International Security & Disarmament Conference, held online on the 20.-21. August 2020.

Focused on Nanobiotechnology Applications for Delivery, this panel session aimed to give participants an introduction to nanotechnology-enhanced delivery methods for the life sciences and explore its risks and benefits while demystify myths about its potential applications, by addressing the following questions:

  • What is nanobiotechnology?
  • What are its dual-use applications for delivery?
  • How are advances in nanobiotechnology augmenting existing biological weapons delivery methods?
  • How realistic are the risks of misuse?
