WHO ARE WE?
NanoBioAp (Nanoparticles for Bio-Applications) is a cluster of excellence financially supported by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of Spanish Government (MINECO) through MAT2016-81955-REDT.
The consortium brings together a vast experience covering nanoparticle synthesis, both by classical and novel routes, their application to point-of-care bioanalytical devices, hyperthermia or controlled drug release, as well as a large variety of characterization techniques and standardized nanometrology methods for industrial utilization.
Different Approaches, Same Goal
A multidisciplinary group that brings together different research teams devoted to nanoparticles (both organic and inorganic) to develop biotechnological applications.
WHAT WE DO?
We research NANO, We think BIGGER
Although the word nano refers to things smaller than what maybe we can imagine, their applicability is huge. However, there is the need to understand how they behave in this tiny dimensions.
Our researchers are focused on nanoscience by different means: the synthesis and deep characterisation of nanomaterials is important in order to use them in the different possible applications. From detecting biomarkers to target malignant cells and deliver drugs, nanomaterials opened a wide range of possibilities. As the great physicist Richard Feynman once said there’s plenty of room at the bottom, and we are more than willing to understand it and take advantage of it.
