To leverage the unique expertise of the Department of Nanobiotechnology in membranes, molecular building blocks, colloids and interfaces to create a world-class cluster in the synthesis, assembly and characterization of nanobiomaterials.
Nanotechnology is often considered as one of the key technologies of the 21st century. Although topical areas of research are still being defined and the entire scope of technological applications cannot be imagined yet, it is already evident that one of the most fruitful areas of research will be found at the interface between biology and physics.
Nanobiotechnology is characterized by its highly interdisciplinary approach and features a close collaboration between life-scientists, physical scientists, and engineers at the nanometer scale. Nanobiotechnology involves a deliberate fusion of micro / nanoscale engineering with biology to produce benefits for both.
The innovative contribution of nanobiotechnology lies in the combination of biological principles, chemical technologies, physics, and engineering in order to obtain nanostructures and mesoscopic architectures with specific functional and often new properties.
Therefore, nanobiotechnology fits perfectly into the interdisciplinary concept of research and education at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences.
