Transparency and reproducibility in nanobiomedicine

On July 3, 2019, Nature Nanotechnology published a Focus collection discussing the challenges around transparency and reproducibility in nanobiomedicine.

This collection contains a range of commentary from leaders in the bio-nano field and is currently freely accessible via https://www.nature.com/collections/igafhehice

The collection is focused around the MIRIBEL effort, published last year, which was developed by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Convergent Bio-Nano Science and Technology together with qBionano.

Guest lectures and the 10th International Nanomedicine Conference

During the summer of 2019, qBionano’s Mattias gave invited guest lectures on bio-nano science and nanomedicine at Zhejiang University (hosted by Prof Yuan Ping) & Shandong University (hosted by Prof Jiwei Cui), and contributed to a workshop on the MIRIBEL guidelines at the 10th International Nanomedicine Conference. Below are some photos from these events.

Dr Björnmalm’s guest lectures partly covered recent work on quantifying cell-particle interactions, the MIRIBEL guidelines, and efforts towards facilitating clinical translation. Related papers with more details include this J. Am. Chem. Soc. perspective and this ACS Nano review.
