Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics studies cellular-level processes

Adelaide-based program brings nanotechnology and photonics together to move beyond bioimaging techniques.

The Centre of Excellence in Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), a newly established collaborative research program based at the University of Adelaide, will begin its work in earnest later this month with a kick-off meeting in the Australian city.

Announced in December 2013 as one of a dozen new centers backed by the Australian Research Council (ARC) and supported by AUS$23 million from the government agency, CNBP aims to develop novel biophotonics techniques suitable for the study of living cells within biological systems.
“The challenge we want to focus on is understanding the biology of single cells and cellular processes, without the need to take the cells out of the body and rely on traditional microscopy,” commented Tanya Monro, director of the university’s Institute for Photonics & Advanced Sensing and now director of CNBP.
