Our research portfolio includes the discovery and preclinical development of nanomedicine constructs based on novel, advanced nanomaterials of synthetic and biological nature
Great emphasis is placed at the interplay between in vitro and in vivo studies and how rationally-designed and engineered nanoscale platforms can be safely translated into clinically effective therapeutics and diagnostics.
The Nanomedicine Lab 2.0 consists of six research teams, each led by a Faculty member or a Senior Scientist, each building expertise and knowledge around a specific focal area of nanomedicine, but all synergistic to one another.
The Nanomedicine Lab is currently leading or participating in the following collaborative projects:
HYBRID MINDS: Experiential, Ethical and Legal Investigation of Intelligent Neuroprostheses
The Hybrid Minds project aims to lay the foundation for a unified theoretical approach to the ethical-legal assessment of intelligent neuroprostheses. The approach is informed by the experiences and perspectives of users as well as dialogue within the neuroengineering community and other key stakeholders.READ MORE

CRUK are investing up to £56 million over 5 years to establish RadNet: a network of centres of excellence and state-of-the-art facilities that are working with the research community to tackle the major challenges in radiobiology and radiation oncology.READ MORE
Innovative approaches to shed light on the health impact of micro and nanoplastics
PLASTICHEAL is a four-year research and innovation action which is funded by the EU program Horizon 2020. The project aims to develop innovative tools to study the impact and mode of action of micro and nanoplastics on human health.READ MORE
Graphene-Based Revolutions in ICT And Beyond GRAPHENE
The Graphene Flagship project is coordinated by Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden and comprises 75 academic and industrial research groups in 17 European countries, including the UK.READ MORE
2D Materials for Next Generation Healthcare Technologies (2D-Health)
2D-Health is a 5 year cross-faculty project based at the University of Manchester, coordinated by Prof Kostarelos. The aim of this project is to explore the use of two-dimensional materials, such as graphene, to improve healthcare.READ MORE
The Nanomedicine Lab works together with many other laboratories across Europe, the US and Corporate partners in various projects. Our partners include:
