qBionano has completed

The qBionano project has now successfully finished. The project was active from August 2017 to August 2019. This webpage will therefore not receive any further updates, but it will remain online on https://qbionano.wordpress.com/ as a reference and for archival purposes. The same is true for the companion webpage https://bjornmalm.wordpress.com/

We would like to thank all of our collaborators for their contributions and enthusiasm over the last two years.

Up-to-date contact details to Dr Mattias Björnmalm can be found via ORCID, Twitter and LinkedIn.

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.
