First Conference on Biomotors, Virus Assembly, and Nanobiotechnology Applications


Organizing Institutes:  The Ohio State University;  Center for RNA Nanobiotechnology and Nanomedicine

Date:  August 16 - 19th, 2017

Location:  The Ohio State University Fawcett Center, 2400 Olentangy River Rd, Columbus, OH 43210, USA

We are pleased to announce the First Conference on Biomotors, Virus Assembly, and Nanobiotechnology Applications to be held August 16-19, 2017 at the Fawcett Center near the campus of The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH, USA. We have invited some of the leading scientists and engineers working in the diverse fields of chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology, microbiology, cell biology, materials, and nanotechnology to participate.

Due to the great potential in the application of biomotors and viral components in nanotechnology, one motivation of organizing this conference is to promote the participation of more bioscientists into the nanobiotechnology field.  Our cross-disiplinary approach to virus assembly, biomotor, and nanobiotechnology research is designed to foster collaborations among scientists.
