At the moment, the construction of the plant has been completed. The launch is scheduled for the next year. It is expected the NT-Pharma will produce vital medical supplies (nano-vaccines and biopharmaceuticals), basing on its own researches.

Now additional questions on the case appeared,"- said the Communications Manager of the Rosnano Alexey Firsov to the Govorit Moskva (Moscow’s speaking) radio station.
