The Nanomaterials for Biology Group focuses on developing a fundamental understanding of how nanoengineered materials interact with biological systems. The goal of our work is to improve the way drugs and vaccines are delivered to cells. We are based at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences in Parkville Melbourne.
Our work includes:
• engineering new materials with bio-responsive properties,
• developing molecular sensors for biological sensing,
• studying the in vitro behaviour of nanomaterials,
• investigating better methods for targeting vaccines to immune cells, and
• applying super-resoluting imaging techniques for material characterisation.
Our research is funded by the following organisations
