This year the ARC Centre for Bio-Nano Science was created to bring together our world-class nano-scientists into one organisation. Although based in Melbourne the Bio-Nano Centre has researchers across five universities nationally — experts in everything from chemistry to engineering, drug design to cancer biology.

It is one of the few research centres designed to bring all aspects of nanotechnology research — engineering, vaccine development, mathematics, imaging — to the study of human health.

One of the key drivers is to take the expertise of nano-scientists across four primary areas — delivery systems; imaging technologies; sensors and diagnostics; and vaccines — to answer critical questions: how to target cancer drugs directly to a tumour; how to scan a body to find microscopic reservoirs of viruses such as HIV; how to switch off the pain receptors in the nerve cells in patients in chronic pain.
