Welcome to the CNBP
At the CNBP we use the power of light to measure, seeking to understand the complex molecular processes that underpin the living body, as well as other dynamic biological systems.
Our approaches and technologies encompass discovery—of chemical, nanomaterial and fibre based light responsive tools—that Sense and that can also Image.
Bringing these three core capability areas together, we are driving the development of innovative new molecular sensing tools that have broad application across the biosciences, medical, agriculture, food and manufacturing sectors.
From next-generation diagnostic devices monitoring for health and disease, through to advanced bio-devices overseeing food and quality control—our tools are measuring activity at the nanoscale, in ways that are producing societal benefit and impact.
You can delve deeper into the impact of our research, explore the advancements we’ve made into areas such as IVF, wound healing and pain, learn about the tools and capabilities we’ve developed and discover some of the people who made it all possible via our new legacy website.
