Summary

The science of the very small is big business these days, as nanotechnology becomes a huge part of multiple sectors. In particular, scientists, engineers, and clinicians who endeavor to better understand how nanotechnology can impact biological systems—through the use of biosensors, biopharmaceuticals, and biomaterials—are finding abundant opportunities to pursue these investigations in multiple environments. Across the globe, demand is high in biosystems nanotechnology for professionals who speak the language of engineering and biology and have skill sets that include collaborating on diverse teams.
