Bionanotechnology is a subset of nanotechnology where the biological world provides the inspiration and/or the end goal. It is defined as atom-level engineering and manufacturing using biological precedence for guidance (Nano-Biomimetics) or traditional nanotechnology applied to biological and biomedical needs. The greatest challenge of bionanotechnology today is in understanding the long term impact on human health and the environment of structures we cannot see even with the most sophisticated optical microscopes and structures that can interact with the basic components of life. A scientific approach of utmost rigor is required to reveal interactions of nanostructures that may be affecting human health.
