Get sick every time you fly? Sonia Trigueros is developing nanoparticles to kill drug-resistant bacteria. Such nanoparticles to be developed in the laboratory can be incorporated onto surfaces in hospitals and air-conditioning units on airplanes where the spread of contagious diseases has become almost inevitable. But for such technology to fulfil its potential, education must remove fear and ensure that society understands the remarkable potential of nanotechnology. Watch Sonia Trigueros, Research Fellow, Biological Physics, Oxford University, explain her second generation antibiotics and discuss why society needs first to be informed to remove the fear and understand the potential of nanotechnology.
