Welcome to the CNBP

At the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) we’re driving the development of new light-based imaging and sensing tools, which can measure in real time, the complex chemical and molecular processes, taking place in and around cells in the living body. Bringing together world-leading expertise in photonics, biochemistry, physics, medicine, engineering and materials science, our innovative work aims to truly understand the ‘machinery of life’ particularly in the key areas of chronic pain (neuroscience), heart disease (cardiology) and reproduction (embryology). Play the video below to find out more about our exciting and innovative activity!

Bubbles can detect sound, with light

13 March 2017: CNBP scientists Dr Ivan Maksymov and Prof Andy Greentree at RMIT University have shown bubbles can detect sound with light in their latest publication in the area of photo-acoustics. “Bubbles can be a boon for detecting the kind of ultrasound used in medicine as air is less dense than water” explains Dr Ivan […]
