R&D Capabilities

Discover what the Biological Nanostructures Facility has to offer.

Biological Imaging

Nanocrystals are being engineered with exceptional optical properties to better study the localization associations and chemistries of molecules within the complexity of functional cells.

Engineered Nanobioassemblies

Biophysics and synthetic biology are used to engineer and explore the nanoscale interface between living microbes and inorganic materials.

Bio-Inspired Nanomaterials

Using robotic synthesis to create information-rich peptoid polymers that fold into precise three-dimensional nanoarchitectures a new class of protein-mimetic materials have been created that combine the specificity and catalytic efficiency of proteins with the ruggedness of traditional polymers.
