Schubert gave an overview of innovative pharmaceutical polymers and polymer-based nanoparticles at the hybrid event taking place on 23 July, 2021. These are needed to make previously unusable antibiotics and antiviral substances available to the human body and to bring active substances to the site of infection in a targeted manner, like in a taxi with GPS.
