Looks like nature picked a good one when she came up with the onion. Fill an onion-like nanoparticle with the right protein, fuse the nanolayers to each other, and you have a vaccine that’s safer than live viruses and more effective than synthetic vaccines.
Interbilayer-crosslinked multilamellar vesicles as synthetic vaccines for potent humoral and cellular immune responses, Nature Materials
Structure networks like an onion, with a tightly connected core and concentric outer layers, and you can make them more secure against attacks.
