The convergence of nanoscience with biology has important implications for the development of future technologies. A key challenge is understanding the interactions of new materials with biological systems at the cellular and subcellular levels. We propose the establishment of a Live Cell Super Resolution Imaging Facility, which will improve the imaging and characterisation of cells in their live dynamic state as they process nanomaterials. This facility will support research by leading researchers at The University of Melbourne, Monash University, RMIT, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Bionics Institute, promoting synergies between researchers in the physical and life sciences towards improved nanotechnology-enabled platforms for biology.
