Today, CNBP researchers from the RMIT node met Associate Investigator Prof Paul Mulvaney in Melbourne to discuss strategies to use fluorescent nanoparticles in biomedical imaging and sensing applications. In particular, the challenges associated with incorporating nanoscale materials into biomedical devices and carrying out highly reproducible and sensitive measurements in complex biological environments were addressed.
