About this Research Topic
The interdisciplinary field of Nanobiotechnology has emerged within the last 10 years by developing technologies at the interface of nanotechnology and bioengineering in response to the grand challenges facing our society and the world in the environmental, medical, and energy fields. Nanobiotechnology merges the knowledge of the special physicochemical and biological properties of nanostructures to explore their applications in different sectors. In addition, numerous synthesis and designs have been developed within the field of nanobiotechnology which has boosted the elegance and sophistication of the properties of materials in order to be used in complex systems such as those found in nature.
Exploring the advances in Nanobiotechnology and the future applications in health, the environment, and bioenergy, will be the main focus of the 2nd International Congress on NanoBioEngineering, organized by the School of Chemical Sciences of the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (UANL) and the Research Center on Biotechnology and Nanotechnology, also part of the UANL. The event will be a platform to foster interactions between scientists, engineers, and medical researchers and discuss the advances and future applications of the interdisciplinary field that works at the interface of Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, and Engineering.
This Research Topic, therefore, seeks original and unpublished research articles and Reviews/mini-reviews reporting all aspects including theoretical studies, practical applications, and experimental prototypes applied to nanobiotechnology focused on applications in the environment, health, and bioenergy. Special thematic areas include, but are not limited to, the following:
3) Computational Analysis and Mathematical Modeling of BioNanoStructures
4) Nanomaterials for the environment
5) Nanomaterials with pharmacological properties
6) Bioprocess and Synthetic Biology
Keywords: Nanotechnology, NanoBiotechnology, NanoEngineering, Nanobioengineering
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
