Nanoscience has the potential to revolutionise and benefit many aspects of human society, especially in the fields of information technology and medicine. As one of the world’s leading centres of knowledge for bionanointeractions, applied to the fields of nanosafety, nanobiology and nanomedicine, the Centre for BioNano Interactions is pioneering many of the new techniques and approaches in this area.
Key areas of research are:
• Interactions between nanoparticles and living systems
• Nanobioscience, nanomedicine, nanodiagnostics, nanosafety
• Health and environmental impact of nanoparticles
• Applications of bionanoscience for therapy and diagnostics
Within this context, CBNI has partnered with Attana AB as part of an Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) research award in order to investigate the application of QCM (quartz crystal microbalance) technology in the measurement of cell-nanoparticle interactions. The successful applicant for this position can expect to work with a range of platforms and methods developed for purpose at the CBNI including flow cytometry, confocal fluorescence microspcopy and electron microscopy and integrate these approaches with QCM investigations on cell- nanoparticle interactions. The applicant will work closely with colleagues at both CBNI and Attana AB to develop the project.
