Nano-Biotechnology

Nano-biotechnology aims at the development of nanotechnology-based tools for biomedical applications. The bottom-up and top-down approaches, typical of nanotechnology, applied to biology and biochemistry lead to the development of nanostructured materials and devices to improve several fields of current biomedical research like Biomolecular Delivery, advanced and high resolution Imaging and Regenerative Medicine. Nanotechnology investigation tools of materials and surfaces applied to biology increase the basic knowledge ofself-assembly of biomolecules (as described in Biointerfaces) and of cellular mechanisms (Cell Biology). In the view of providing “point-of-care” diagnostic toolsand state-of-the–art approaches towards personalized medicine,microscale devicesare developedas described in the sections Lab on Chip and Biosensors & Bioelectronics. Nano-biotechnological applications are supported by the Modeling, Theory and Computation reported in the section Computational Biology.

Biomolecular Delivery

The major goal in designing nanosystems as drug delivery vectors is to control the release of pharmacologically active agents and to achieve the site-specific action of drugs at a therapeutically optimal rate and dosage regimen…

Cell biology

The research activities of this area at the cross-roads of materials science, nanotechnology and cell biology, primarily focusing on how newly-discovered materials and interfacial processes can be developed and used for specific applications…

Imaging

At NANOTEC several high resolution techniques are available for fine imaging of biomolecules, living cells and tissue. Mainly we focus on engineering of high-resolution molecular and semiconductor-based tools for fine fluorescence imaging…

Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine is a branch of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the process of replacing, engineering or regenerating cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function…

Lab on chip (LOC)

The Lab on a Chip (LOC) family is wide and multifaced due to the large number of possible applications ranging from the biomedical to the agrifood and environmental fields….
