Materials science and engineering has an important role to play in overcoming the current COVID-19 pandemic. Listen to Science Writer Philip Ball talk with three materials researchers, Catherine Fromen (University of Delaware), Thomas Webster (Northeastern University), and George Stylios (Heriott-Watt University, Edinburgh) about their work in different aspects of materials science to mitigate the pandemic. They cover various aspects, including drug delivery for immune engineering for COVID-19, the use of nanoparticles to directly target the virus, vaccines and materials connections, and how materials play a critical role in face mask technologies. For more on this subject, see MRS Bulletin, "The quest for materials solutions to the coronavirus pandemic," by Philip Ball.
