About Nanomedicine & Bionanotechnology

The Nanomedicine and Bionanotechnology area uses the various technologies developed in materials, nanofabrication, devices, and M/NEMS to study and solve biological and medical problems. High sensitivity disease diagnostics using optical/electronic “chips”; development of new tools for understanding the function of cancer cells, stem cells and neurons; photonic crystals for label-free biological detection; integrated biochips for label-free electrical detection of DNA and proteins; semiconductor quantum dot nanoparticles for quantitative biomedical imaging; engineered systems built with live cells; and integration of biosensing with mobile communications platforms are examples of research activities being carried out.
