Food microbes beware: It’s raining nanobombs

March 2015 — Using nanotechnology, a team led by Philip Demokritou, associate professor of aerosol physics and director of the Laboratory for Environmental Health NanoSciences at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, has figured out a way to make super-tiny “nanobombs” made of water that are able to destroy food pathogens—a potential game-changer in the fight against toxic microorganisms such as E. coli, salmonella, and listeria.
