Special Symposium

Development of a rational basis for investigating and understanding how nanomaterials interact within living systems (cells, tissues, organisms, humans) is a fundamental challenge. Understanding the mechanisms and spatiotemporal aspects of nanoparticle (NP) interactions with living systems will enable the design new nano-based therapies and diagnostic platforms, as well as ensuring that nanomaterials not intended for human contact can be utilized safely.

Researchers engaged in combining physical chemical approaches with biological technologies to develop quantitative bionanoscience are invited to submit their work to this exciting, high-profile, event.

Topics & Application Areas

  • Mechanisms of NP uptake by cells
  • Imaging approaches to monitor nanomaterials in cellular environments
  • NP-protein interactions & the development of biomolecule coronas
  • Mathematical modeling/simulation of NP impacts on living systems
  • Other
