Nanobiomedicine is one of the strong points of research in Catalonia, a community that has been pioneer in Spain in the creation of centres, now international references, focused on the multidisciplinary integration of nano and biotechnology.
In view of this potential, BioNanoMed Catalunya, the nanobiomedicine alliance of Catalonia, has been constituted under the impetus of organisations carrying out research in nanotechnology and nanobiomedicine, the idea being to develop and promote this sector within the BioRegió of Catalonia.
