On the same night, November 16th 2021, Nanoform was also shortlisted for two further awards at the European Mediscience Awards, which took place in London. This was a great accolade as many of the award winners were rightly recognized for their outstanding contributions to COVID, such as AstraZeneca and BioNTech. To be in the presence of industry drug development giants shows that small continues to be powerful.
