Department of biomedical nanotechnology
This department is concerned, which is an important branch of the of nanotechnology branches, that deals with the application of biological and biochemical biomedical. The medical applications represent the modern applications of nanotechnology among the other applications due to its direct association with the lives and health of the human being. A lot of medical applications related to the diagnosis of specific high-efficiency treatment as well as a lot of applications in the field of healthcare, and the most devastating diseases to humans, such as cancer.
Due to the large scientific developments in the field of medicine, the applications of nanotechnology on living organisms have become a target for many international universities and research centers to deal with. So the introduction of this section was to employ nanotechnology applications in biotechnology and medicine. The research team is working on the many activities, such as:
- BioMedical nanosensors
The scientific groups specialized to do applied research of interests to hospitals and medical research centers in order to solve the dilemmas techniques in the treatment of some incurable diseases. These groups manufacture nano-sensors for locating the defect in the body's organs and to provide alternatives biome that is matching the properties of living tissue from nanomaterials which are prepared at the center for these uses. They also are using nanomaterials as alternatives to antibiotics and doing applied research that aims to determine the environmental effects of nanomaterials and the study of the therapeutic effect or toxicity for different types of nanoparticles on laboratory animals to determine the health safety when applied to humans.
- Applications of nanotechnology in drug delivery
The teamwork on employing nanomaterials in the form of plankton or powders are delivered or loaded into the cells through the recruitment of proteins and nucleic acids. where, uses of the carbon nanotubes and carbon-nanoparticles balls (buckyballs) which are a ultrafine structures that deliver the drug not only for diseased tissue, but the infected cells and with great precision, and that penetrate the medication improves dramatically, They are also useful in reducing the side effects of the drug because they deal directly with the diseased cells only and thus less side effects, which may occur from the arrival of the drug to undertake other were not intended to treat.
