Nanopinion: Balancing Safety, Sustainability, and Innovation - Calcium Carbonate Nanoparticles in Biomedical Applications

Read the latest Nanopinion by Dr. Ester Carregal-Romero, Prof. Jesús-Cabello, and Dr. Susana Carregal-Romero where they introduce the benefits of Safe and Sustainable by Design (SSbD) approach for nanomaterials and present applications of Calcium Carbonate in new biomedical systems.

"There is a need for a mindset change starting in the innovation phase to ensure that newly developed nanomaterials combine safety and sustainability. This undoubtedly applies to the industry and R&D of nanomaterials for biomedical applications, such as drug delivery, new contrast agents, theranostic nanoprobes, and regenerative nanomedicines."
