Polymer-based nanoparticle libraries for targeted anti-inflammatory strategies
A chemist uses a pipette to introduce cell samples into a so-called microtiter plate.

Important notice

Dear all,

I must address you as a scientist, university lecturer and citizen.

The current situation is very, very serious!

It is up to all of us to make a difference here - without using "Chinese methods".

I ask you to really keep your distance, to practice maximum hygiene, to minimize contacts, to NOT have any corona parties! And also to take and convince all fellow citizens - without maximum control.

Italy had more than 470 dead and 4,200 newly infected persons yesterday, in Germany today there were more than 2,700 newly infected persons. Unfortunately, the number of deaths will now also increase here - and not only among our older fellow citizens.

The exponential increase in the spread must be slowed down as quickly as possible! Every day that we are not consistent enough now will later cost us over a week to contain the infection rates (i.e. still closed daycare centres/schools, shops, possibly quarantine).

Please help EVERYONE to cope with this crisis together in the best possible way.

Sincerely yours,

Ulrich Schubert

The Collaborative Research Center PolyTarget is developing polymer-based, nanoparticulate carrier materials for the targeted application of active pharmaceutical ingredients. In the foreground are systems that are suitable for the treatment of diseases and syndromes whose morbidity is significantly characterized by an inflammatory reaction.
