Nano Bio Technologies

Nano-Bio Technologies have seen one of the earliest translations of nanoscience into biomedical technologies, with uses in cellular imaging and mechanisms, sensing, regeneration, and targeting of disease. The NanoDTC research in Nano-Bio includes projects in ultra-high resolution imaging of biological (sub-cellular) entities, microfluidic assays and coded nanotag sensing,  tip-neuron interactions and nano-mechanical cues for neuron re-growth, scaffolds for bone regeneration, ultrahigh sensitivity biomolecular sensing and neurotransmitter assays through plasmonics, ultra-high-speed genetic sequencing using nano-apertures, nanoparticle toxicity,  and insect adhesion mechanisms at the nanoscale.

Research Groups involved include: Biological and Soft Systems (Physics), Knowles Lab (Chemistry), Scherman Group (Chemistry), Nanophotonics Group (Physics), Laser Analytics (Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology), Franze Lab (Physiology, Development and NeuroScience), Insect Biomechanics Group (Zoology) and many others.

Our Research Theme in Nano Bio Technologies includes anything with an element of biology or biological materials / soft matter.

Please contact our Nano Bio Technologies Theme Coordinator Dr. Eileen Nugent or our Teaching Fellow Dr. Karishma Jain to find out more about this theme.
