Nanoscale Bioscience

The Nanoscale Bioscience group use nanoscale materials as tools to probe and interact with a variety of biological functions in cells and tissues. Application examples include the interaction of magnetic nanoparticles with magnetic fields in order to stimulate cells in a variety of ways, such as inducing differentiation in stem cells, or producing heat shock effects to induce apoptosis in cancer cells. The group is also concerned with the development of new instrumentation and the application of advanced techniques to probe biochemical structure and function at the nanoscale.
