Abstract

The convergence of nanotechnology with biotechnology offers unprecedented opportunities to prepare nanomaterials with defined structure and function on the nanometre scale. However, the small length scales involved in nanomaterials present challenges in their characterisation, and in turn, their interaction with biological systems. The Advanced NanoBiomaterials Imaging Facility will provide state-of-the-art equipment for examining the properties of nanomaterials and their interaction with biosystems. The equipment will facilitate the development of new materials that are expected to underpin advances in drug delivery, diagnostics and implant devices, further strengthening Australia's strong ..
