Aims and scope

Journal of Nanobiotechnology is an open access peer-reviewed journal communicating scientific and technological advances in the fields of medicine and biology, with an emphasis in their interface with nanoscale sciences. The journal provides biomedical scientists and the international biotechnology business community with the latest developments in the growing field of Nanobiotechnology.

Featured collection: Swiss National Research Programme “Opportunities and risks of nanomaterials” (NRP 64)

Opportunities and risks for human health and the environment in relation to the manufacture, use and disposal of synthetic nanomaterials need to be better understood.

The Swiss National Research Programme "Opportunities and risks of nanomaterials" (NRP 64) hopes to be able to bridge the gaps in our current knowledge on nanomaterials.

Featured article: Nanoscale click-reactive scaffolds from peptide self-assembly

Self-assembled amyloid fibrils can be used to organise cargo species such as proteins and oligonucleotides. Guttenplan and colleagues demonstrate functionalization via click reactions carried out after self-assembly of amyloid fibrils, so that the molecules used to functionalise do not need to b exposed to the harsh, amyloid forming reaction conditions.

Editor Profiles

Professor Fernando Patolsky

Professor Patolsky is Associate Professor at the department of Chemistry, Tel Aviv University, Israel. As a young and well-acknowledged scientist in the fields of biotechnology and nanobiotechnology, Fernando's research has focused on the development of molecular and biomolecular electronic and optical systems, aiming to establish fundamental principles for the construction of optical and electronic sensors and biosensors. These scientific activities represent a leading interdisciplinary effort to bridge chemistry, biology and materials science. He has published more than 70 papers and book chapters since 1998, with more than 5,100 citations, that focus on the synthesis of novel nanoscale materials, the creation of electrical and optoelectrical nanoscale devices and their applications.

Prof Aebi

Professor Ueli Aebi

Professor Aebi is Professor and Director of the M.E. Müller Institute for Structural Biology at the Biozentrum, University of Basel, Switzerland. A pioneer of nanobiology and nanomedicine, Ueli earned his Ph.D. in biophysics in 1977 from the University of Basel and continued his research at the University of California in Los Angeles, before joining the faculty at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore. After his return to Basel in 1986, Ueli retained strong links with his colleagues in the United States and in 2005 co-founded the American Academy of Nanomedicine (now American Society for Nanomedicine).
