Over time the human body has become the greatest focus of scientific attention and the ties between natural sciences and medicine have become ever tighter. The intersection of nanoscience and biology, a.k.a. nanobiotechnology, is expected to be a source of new and more patient-friendly ways of preventing and treating an array of diseases. The Uskokovic Lab focuses on devising advanced nanomaterials for application in tissue regeneration and other areas of preventive and restorative medicine. The Uskokovic Lab began its operation in February 2015.
