Researchers with diverse skills including physics, chemistry, biology, material science and engineering working together.
Examining, manipulating and mixing nanoscale materials to develop new technologies.
Probing individual cells within living organisms.
This video produced by the World Science Fair explains nanometre by comparing the size of a human hair to the Empire State Building
Biophotonics is the use of Photonics in biological systems
This video produced at the Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center - Salk Institute describes BioPhotonics and discusses the potential for this research
Photonics explained by Professor Tanya Monor at the RiAus Science Inspiration
But what is the CNBP trying to do?
We are developing light-based sensing tools, which can measure in real time, complex chemical and molecular processes, in the living body and in other dynamic biological environments.
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.
This video developed by the CNBP explores our innovative work with nanoparticles - producing, functionalizing and then using nanoparticles to detect targets in cells so that molecular activity can be measured and quantified, in tissue and in the living body.
