Project Description

The CoE in Convergent Bio-Nano Science &Technology comprises a multi-disciplinary team focused on
research aiming to understand and control the interface of materials with biological systems. The Centre will
exploit knowledge of the bio-nano interface to design materials that transport and deliver vaccines, drugs
and gene therapy agents, and to design new diagnostic agents and devices. Nanomedicines are on the cusp
of revolutionizing diagnosis and therapy in many diseases. The CoE will be the focus of bio-nano research
activity in Australia, uniting universities, research agencies, institutes and companies. The expected
outcomes are better diagnostic and therapeutic tools designed via an enhanced understanding of the bionano-
