Center for Bio-Inspired Nanoparticles
The Center for Bio-Inspired NanoMaterials [CBIN] at Montana State University is a multidisciplinary research and education center focused on utilizing and expanding our fundamental understanding of the formation and hierarchical construction of biological materials such as viruses, cells, and biominerals (bones, teeth, seashells etc.). One extension of this fundamental work is the use of biological macromolecular assemblies as templates for the construction of novel functional nano-materials. However, the goal of the Center is to study a wide range of materials, beyond those of biological origin, to achieve unique physical properties by design.
Support for CBIN comes from the Office of Naval Research, Department of Energy, the National Institutes of Health, SpeciGen Inc., and the National Science Foundation.
