Welcome to the BioNanoEngineering group directed by Dr. Benjamin Thierry. The group is a part of the Ian Wark Research Institute, the Australian Research Council Special Research Centre for Particle and Material Interfaces. Our research activities focus at the interface of nanomaterials science, biotechnology and medicine. A key-hypothesis underlying our work is that the materials-living interface is pivotal in developing advanced and innovative diagnostic and therapeutic biomedical approaches. Taking advantage of the excellent facilities at the Ian Wark, including the South Australian node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF), and through a network of biomedical and clinical collaborators, we are currently pursuing translational research activities in BioNanoTechnologies towards the development of novel diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic approaches.
