IJBNN proposes and fosters discussion on scientific and technological investigations of nanomaterials in biology and medicine, with emphasis on their biomedical implications and impacts upon the biosphere. This perspective acknowledges the complexity of biomedical nanoscience and nanotechnology as an interface between the biomedical arena and the nanosystem.


 Topics covered include

  • Synthesis and fabrication of nanomaterials for biomedical applications
  • Manufacture of nanodevices for biomedical applications
  • Nanobiology
  • Nanotoxicology
  • Nanobiochemistry
  • Nanomedicine
  • Nanoscale drug delivery vehicles, therapeutic and diagnostic agents
  • Policy and regulations related to biomedical nanoscience and nanotechnology

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJBNN are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with the complex role of biomedical nanoscience and nanotechnology in society. In particular, the journal will provide a source of high quality peer-reviewed research into the contemporary discipline of nanoscience and a platform for effective communication of the latest findings in biomedical nanotechnology.


IJBNN provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of biomedical nanoscience and nanotechnology, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work. The journal targets readers in the fields of fundamental and applied nanosciences and the biomedical applications of nanotechnology.


IJBNN publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in biomedical nanoscience and nanotechnology will occasionally be published.
