The cover of Advanced Materials is highly coveted. It is instantly recognisable and associated worldwide with the highest quality research from the top researchers in the field. We are proud to announce that our latest publication made the cover page of Advanced Materials, Volume 34, Issue 8.
Immediately upon encountering blood, nanoparticles are attacked by complement proteins. Complement binding produces an anaphylaxis-like reaction and causes nanoparticles to be cleared from circulation by phagocytes. To defend nanoparticles, in article number 2107070, Jacob W. Myerson, Jacob S. Brenner, and co-workers demonstrate how to conjugate nanoparticles to humans' natural complement inhibitor, Factor I, which defends the nanoparticle from complement attack, thus ameliorating all the above problems.
