The JRC nanobiotechnology laboratory has state-of-the-art facilities for interdisciplinary studies, with a special emphasis on the characterisation of nanomaterials, nanomedicines, advanced materials, and micro(nano)plastics. Our institutional work focuses on developing a science-based understanding of the physico-chemical properties of these materials and their interactions with biological systems.
We have a multidisciplinary team of scientists, including chemists, physicists, biologists, and materials scientists with extensive experience in the fields of physico-chemical characterisation of materials and nanobiosciences.
User institutions can conduct a range of research activities, from experimental proof-of-concept studies to the testing/optimisation of developing technologies. The laboratory is also the pilot facility for the training and capacity building project.
