This group contains the following:
The safe and successful application of nanotechnology in the biological realm remains a challenge due to the inherent multiscale nature of biology. Engineering nanoBIO devices requires the knowledge of how nanotechnology-based devices interact with biological systems at the protein, cell, tissue, and organ levels.
The Engineered nanoBIO node at Indiana University (IU) will develop a powerful set of integrated computational nanotechnology tools (apps) that address this complex, multiscale problem in both education and research and facilitate the discovery of customized, efficient, and safe nanoscale devices for biological applications.
Apps currently available include: Ions in nanoconfinement, a cancer nanotherapy simulator, CompuCell3D and Nanosphere Electrostatics Lab.
NCN’s nanoBIO Node at Urbana was based at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and remains a rich resource for material in the nanoBIO realm.
