Nanobiointerfaces Group (Prof. Duncan S. Sutherland - duncan@inano.au.dk)
Frontpage / News / Research (you are here) / People / Group Publications / Funding

The main research at the Nanobiointerfaces group is driven by developments in nanoscale engineering and using such new engineering as tools to study physical science or biological science questions in a way that has not been possible before. It is basic research, although it has a strong link to the engineering.
