Nano@UMBC is your portal to all things nano at UMBC. It highlights many of the cutting-edge research groups at UMBC with a focus on translational nanoscience. The research spans several disciplines and departments and represented the multidisciplinary research occurring on our campus. Current research efforts focus on, for example, the development of novel biosensor receptors for prolonged physiological sensing and pre-symptomatic disease diagnosis, the development of biocompatible nano-biomaterials for implantable medical devices, and the development of novel nanoparticle based theranostics to name a few.
