Tiny Steps Towards a framework for democratic governance of nanotech risks and benefits in the global South

We have been looking at issues surrounding nanotechnology & development for almost  decade, so a new brief from Nano-Dev called “Nanotechnologies for development: Towards a framework for democratic governance of risks and benefits in the global South” naturally caught our eye (available as a PDF here). Unfortunately it’s another report that fudges the issue by concluding that while nanotechnology may have some advantages there …

The Market for Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery in 2021 – Nanocarriers vs Drug Nanocrystals

There are two different approaches to Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery,  making drug crystals smaller to increase solubility and bioavailability, or using some form of carrier to deliver them in a more effective manner. If we look at the total market size in 2021, it is a 60/40 split in favour of drug nano crystals although we feel that developing new delivery mechanisms …
