Nanotechnology can be harnessed to address some of the critical problems of the developing world.
Indo-US Joint Center for nanobiotechnology is a collaborative initiative in bridging nanotechnology
and biomedical sciences and India and the United States. This initiative is supported by the Indo-US
Science and Technology Forum and the Department of Science and Technology, Government of
India. It brings together leaders in nanotechnology and biology from USA (Harvard and MIT) and India
(NCBS, JNCASR, and CCMB). The focus is on exploring how nanotechnology can impact biology and
how biology can inspire nanotechnology.
