The ARC Centre of Excellence in Bio-Nano Science and Technology (CBNS) is a national innovator in bio-nano sciences and an incubator of the expertise and technological excellence required to develop next generation bio-responsive nanomaterials.
The objectives of the CBNS are to:
The CBNS is funded by the Australian Research Council through the Centres of Excellence program. We are a collaboration between five Australian universities (Monash University and the Universities of Melbourne, Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia) where the majority of the CBNS’s research is undertaken. The core research is enhanced through our partners where we link with other experts nationally and from around the world.
The CBNS researchers have a diverse range of expertise, spanning nanotechnology, polymer science, cell biology, cancer biology, systems biology, pharmacology, chemical engineering, 3D CGI, immunology, chemistry and social science.
Detailed information about our research, people and activities in any year can be found in our Annual reports.
