Main content


The Bionanoscience category is a forum for original research and mini reviews on topics at the interface between nanotechnology and the biological or medical sciences: Nanotechnology is broadly defined as research and technology development at the atomic, molecular, or macromolecular levels in the length scale of approximately 1-100 nanometer range. Of particular interest are manuscripts describing synthetic or natural nanostructures that have innovative applications in the treatment or diagnosis of disease or in the advancement of basic biological research. This encompasses topics in the field of nanomedicine. While no less important, the development and application of medical devices and instrumentation involving nanotechnology is not emphasized in the Bionanosciences section and manuscripts in this area might be suited for the Biomedical Engineering section.
