Nanobiotechnology is an emerging area that deals with using nanotechnology for medical applications. Although this field is relatively new its potential applications are enourmous. It is one day possible to create nanoparticles that can search for tumor cells and selectively destroy them. Also it is possible to make nanoparticles that can be used to image features in the body.
The task of this committee is to develop programming and events to highlight and further the area of microtechnologies and BioMEMS for human health.
