Who we are

DYNANO is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network, funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme.

It trains a new generation of scientists in the interdisciplinary field of dynamic interactive nanosystems for biomedical & biotechnological applications.

DYNANO partners come from both academia & industry and offer interdisciplinary training in physics, chemistry, biology & medicine to their young researchers.

What DYNANO is about

DYNANO’s scientific objective is to explore multivalent molecular biorecognition by using functional nanoplatforms.

DYNANO researchers design, produce, optimize functional systems such as membranes, biosensors, microarrays & nanodevices for biomedical, biotechnological & industrial applications.

DYNANO recruits 12 PhD students and 3 post-doc researchers to achieve its scientific objective.

DYNANO in a nutshell

  • Advanced inter-disciplinary training using a dynamic chemistry/glycosciences/ nanotechnology platform.

  • Inter-sectorial training between academic groups & industry partners.

  • Advanced knowledge in design & generation of dynamic nanosystems for glycoscience applications.

  • New applications of dynamic nanosystems leading to new products.

News From the coordinator

The NSA group has now its own website.

They are developing an interdisciplinary research project in chemistry, biology & physics, using a supramolecular chemistry/bioorganic chemistry/nanomaterials platform. The methodology consists in a new global approach including many multidisciplinary knots of synergetic concepts in molecular conception, supramolecular transcription and material chemistry which can be implemented simultaneously in order to converge to polyfunctional "Systems membranes".

Project Coordinator: Dr. Mihai BARBOIU, CNRS- European Membrane Institute, CNRS-IEM, Montpellier, France. FP7-PEOPLE-2011-ITN - Grant agreement n°: PITN-GA-2011-289033 - Start date: November 1st 2011 - End date: October 31st 2015 - Duration: 48 months - EC funding: 3 825 000 €.
