Abstract: Nanomaterials are widely used in many fields because of their extraordinary chemico-physical properties, which are also found to induce numerous biological effects. These bio-effects could be either hazardous to environment and health or advantageous to developing biomedical nanoproducts. In order to speed up the studies on nanosafety or bioapplications of nanoparticles, a fundamental understanding of nano-bio interactions is required. However, so far, we are lack of a methodology to figure out the relationship between nanoparticle properties and biological effects. In order to resolve this problems, a nanomaterial library-predictive toxicology based platform was established to investigate nano-bio interactions, which will greatly facilitate the hazard assessment, safe design and bioapplications of nanomaterials.
