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.

“Hackathon” to build interdisciplinary teams

16 September: By Dr Andrew Care The 2019 BioNetwork “hackathon” Event was held last week at Macquarie University (MQ). The CNBP-sponsored event promoted interdisciplinarity between the different departments on campus in order to foster innovation and successful collaborations for early-career researchers. The event was modeled as a “hackathon”  in order to develop team building in […]

How Bollywood boost Australia’s brainpower

3 September 2019: In the 10 years since graduating with a degree in biotechnology from university in her home state of Odisha in India, Minakshi Das has covered a lot of ground – both physically and in her studies. First she did her masters in Biomedical Engineering at Gachon University in South Korea followed by […]

Family fund keeps quantum researcher’s family together

29 August 2019: CNBP researcher Dr James Quach is working on a quantum battery which, if he can demonstrate it works as the theory suggests, could revolutionise how fast we can charge electronic devices.But the work involves collaborations around the world, and with that lots of time-consuming travel, something that has become unappealing if it […]

Prestigious research award for emerging fertility leader

26 August 2019:  Dr Kylie Dunning is motivated by creating a world where fewer couples struggle with infertility, an often invisible and stigmatised health challenge facing more than 15% of Australian couples. With lived experience herself of the challenges of starting a family, Dr Dunning is paving the way for couples to experience better, and […]
