The Nanobiology programme of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) will require not simply collaboration between disciplines, but true disciplinary integration of physics and biology.


The Nanobiology programme of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) builds on extensive existing bottom up research collaborations and cooperative mission organizations like Medical Delta. The molecular building blocks of living organisms are the focus and current advances in the nanotechnology toolkit enable the precise visualization, study and control of these biological molecules. 

Programme highlights

Developments in biomedicine, such as studies on human genome variation and the control of stem cells, increasingly require analysis and quantitative description at the fundamental level. Furthermore, it is becoming possible to use the elements of the cell to develop artificial biomolecules and nanoparticles with wide applications in research and medicine. The incorporation of new biological building blocks is highly promising for instance in industrial biotechnology and medical science. These advances will reshape many aspects of medical diagnosis and treatment. The rapid advancement of modern biomedical, biophysical and computational technologies promises to provide new tools to gain in depth knowledge of the fundamental molecular and cellular mechanisms controlling health or involved in disease.
