HURON, OHIO (Sept. 8, 3 p.m. ET) — Particles too small to be seen with the naked eye are among the most difficult elements to incorporate in medical-device materials. In this video from PN's recent Plastics in Medical Devices conference, Joel Elhard, senior research scientist at the Battelle Memorial Institute in Columbus, Ohio, explains where researchers think nanoparticles are heading in the future.
“We really think that multifunctional materials, and active targeting and delivery is probably where the next generation of” nanoparticles can make an impact, Elhard said.
Battelle Memorial Institute is a charitable trust headquartered in Columbus, with 22,000 employees in more than 130 locations worldwide.
Plastics in Medical Devices, sponsored by Plastics News Global Group, was held in Huron.
