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
- Nanoscale drug delivery vehicles, therapeutic and diagnostic agents
- Policy and regulations related to biomedical nanoscience and nanotechnology
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.

Making a wonder material more wonderful
14 May, 2020
Graphene is a form of the chemical element carbon. Well-known forms of carbon include the world's hardest material, diamond, and the soft black material known as the "lead" in a pencil, which is graphite. Graphite can be visualized as layers of carbon atoms stacked together in sheets with each sheet resembling a hexagonally woven chicken wire fence or a very thin honeycomb. Graphene is to all intents and purposes a single sheet from one of those stacks. It is thus one of the thinnest materials known, an atomic monolayer of carbon atoms. It has become the focus of much research in recent years with its potential to weave the fabric of a future of molecular electronics devices because of its unique chemical, optical, and electronic properties. Now, writing in the International Journal of Biomedical Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, a team from Malaysia reports on advances in how graphene sheets might be modified for different applications by attaching different chemical groups to the sheets [...]
