Materials Colloquium 2021, September 15th


From binary lipid-water phase diagrams to lipid nanoparticle-based mRNA
COVID-19 vaccines

Peter Walde (Laboratory for Multifunctional Materials – D-MATL)

The aim of the talk is to emphasize that basic research on the aggregation behavior of amphiphilic lipids in aqueous solution and on the controlled formation of lipid vesicles (liposomes) for drug delivery applications was essential for the successful development of lipid nanoparticle-based mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
