The process of globalization is entering a new era characterized by soaring flows of cross-border information.
As the locus shifts from physical networks of production and trade to global information networks. The global networks are transforming to become richer, deeper and more distributed through the proliferation of information technology.
The globalization of today is driven by flows of information that create a much more subtle form of globalization that is ever more decentralized geographically and complex in nature.
In the medical realm, synergies between digitization/AI, nanotechnology, and nanomedicine are envisioned by NA to drive the emergence of a single worldwide health care system under the moniker Global Health Care Equivalency (GHCE). Incremental advancements in each of these areas will likely lead to the realization of GHCE within the next 10-20 years, with women leading the way.

Although the currently available COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective, limited manufacturing capacity and the need for cold-chain storage hinder their global distribution. A recent study tested the efficacy of a new adeno-associated virus (AAV) [...]
Fully vaccinated people were 11 times less likely to die of COVID and 10 times less likely to be hospitalized compared to the unvaccinated since highly contagious Delta became the most common variant, US [...]
The highly-infectious Delta coronavirus variant has spread to at least 174 countries worldwide, from the US to Australia, causing a surge in COVID-19 cases. The variant has mutations that help it partially escape the immune response produced by [...]
Fragile mRNA molecules used in COVID-19 vaccines can’t get into cells on their own. They owe their success to lipid nanoparticles that took decades to refine. Messenger RNA (mRNA) is having a moment. This [...]
The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed critical knowledge gaps and assumptions concerning how respiratory viruses spread between hosts. Traditionally thought to be spread mainly through large respiratory droplets produced by the coughs and sneezes of sick individuals, [...]
SARS-CoV-2 is just one of nonillions of viruses on our planet, and scientists are rapidly identifying legions of new species. Mya Breitbart has hunted novel viruses in African termite mounds, Antarctic seals and water [...]
