Dr Nan Zgang with UCD Nova Award

Dr Zhang was awarded for his work around microfluidic systems with nanomedicine. Dr Nan Zhang during his speech said:

“The Covid-19 pandemic has led to an unprecedented loss of lives, and the development of mRNA vaccines has underscored the critical importance of nanomedicine in today's world. I sincerely hope that our high-throughput microfluidic formulation solution will significantly accelerate the development of nanomedicines. Our aim is to enable patients suffering from cancer, infectious diseases, and rare conditions to have access to more effective and targeted treatments and to access the medicine as fast as possible, ultimately saving lives.”
