Special Symposium

Recent advances in nanotechnology are bringing novel capabilities to modern cell and molecular biology research. Tools have been developed to categorize and functionally analyze intra cellular structures. However, many questions remain to be answered by biologists about molecular dynamics at the nano scale.

The application of nanobiotechnology to molecular and cellular dynamics (MCD) will allow researchers to maniputlate individual genes and proteins for investigating complex biological functions in living cells, and ultimately, for curing diseases. Current challenges are listed below:
