"That's not a bionanotechnology center.
The closest thing to it there that I saw was the mentions of "biomimicry" on the CSEN site(s):

John Kennard replied to John Kennard's discussion Bionanotechnology versus Nanobiotechnology in Bionanotechnology
"What does this have to do with the distinction between bionanotechnology and nanobiotechnology? or with bionanotechnology per se? it would seem more suitable for the group "Nanoethics" if anything."

"I was just looking over the website(s) for all that, and am fairly shocked.
It all seems about money.
No love for the science or technology at all. All about money. Startups, collaborations, sponsorships, product viability, time-to-market, green wor…"

John Kennard commented on TINC's blog post British lab growing human body parts
"Um.
This looks like fraud, on the face of it.
Whether a fake story or deeper.
That is, the development of an organ like a nose is so dependent on such a long chain of preceding and surrounding and interactive tissue and organ development that it rea…"
