Welcome to the CNBP

At the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) we’re driving the development of new light-based imaging and sensing tools, which can measure in real time, the complex chemical and molecular processes, taking place in and around cells in the living body. Bringing together world-leading expertise in photonics, biochemistry, physics, medicine, engineering and materials science, our innovative work aims to truly understand the ‘machinery of life’ particularly in the key areas of chronic pain (neuroscience), heart disease (cardiology) and reproduction (embryology).

Talking science at UoA Open Day

20 August 2017: CNBP volunteers at the University of Adelaide Open Day took the opportunity to set-up a stand and to demonstrate Centre related science, Sunday 20th August, 2017. The Open Day, showcasing programs, facilities, and options for student study at the University, saw many thousands of visitors to Campus and the CNBP team was ready! […]

CNBP at Macquarie Uni Open Day

19 August 2017: ‘The power of light to measure’ was the phrase commonly expressed by Centre researchers staffing the CNBP stand at this year’s Macquarie University Open Day. This was in response to potential University students and their family members, who were looking to find out more about nanoscale biophotonics as well as to better […]

Outreach at Concordia College

16 August 2017: Students from Concordia College got the low-down on STEM careers—as well as learnt more about lasers, laboratories and the life of a scientist at a school outreach event organised and run by CNBP researchers from the University of Adelaide. The event, celebrating National Science Week, saw a team of CNBP scientists and researchers visit […]

New CNBP research assistant

16 August 2017: CNBP would like to welcome Robyn Kievit to the team. Located at the University of Adelaide, Robyn has joined the CNBP as a research assistant. She will primarily work within the Origins of Sensing biological challenges group (understanding the role of brain immune signals in the creation of chronic pain) with Dr Sanam […]

Launch of CNBP and CU partnership

15 August 2017: The University of Colorado Boulder (CU) and the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) have officially announced their research partnership status at a launch event that took place at CU today. The collaboration between the CNBP, an Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence, and the University of Colorado Boulder, will explore the use of novel CNBP biophotonics […]
