About the group

Bionanomaterials group (BNMG) is an interdisciplinary research group focusing on the application of materials science for biological system. BNMG is conducting research on exploiting the uniqueness of engineered nanomaterials for use in biomedical applications (guided regeneration, nanomedicine). In addition, research activities are also directed towards understanding the intrinsic properties of novel materials and using them to get a predictive biological impact, for cellular and environmental research.
