A multidisciplinary group leaded by the University of Oviedo that brings together different research teams devoted to nanoparticles (both organic and inorganic) to develop a vast number of biotechnological applications.
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 these 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.
We are devoted to different applications:
But our members work in a lot of more projects!
