Bio-nano interactions: new tools, insights and impacts
Satellite meeting organised by Dr Michaela Kendall, Professor Kevin Kendall FRS and Dr Liam Grover and Professor Paula Mendes
Bionanotechnology is advancing to control and understand bio-nano interactions. New materials and devices are developed for applications, such as medicine. Influencing biology with nanoscopic materials provides opportunity to create innovative therapies or detect disease with unprecedented sensitivity, revealing the functions of cell components or molecules. Intracellular interference implies that toxicological risk should also be considered and avoided by safe design.
