BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS OF NANOTECHNOLOGY
NANOBIOMEDICINEThe Institute of Nanoscience of Aragon (INA) is a research centre within the University of Zaragoza. Since 2003 it focuses on research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. INA develops a multidisciplinary research in different fields (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine..) which makes possible to strengthen its scientific skills in the field of Biotechnology.Nanobiomedicine uses nanotechnology to improve the ability of medicine to study, diagnose and treat the most common illnesses of the population. New possibilities rise in order to establish new approaches targeted to customized therapies, drug delivery drugs with reduced toxicity and side effects in patient. New devices are developed, such as specific sensors. Also, medical imaging techniques (MRI) are improved thanks to Nanobiotechnology. 2
