Proteins are the most versatile biological building blocks, composed of amino acids offering rich chemistry. Proteins present enormous diversity in 3D structures that translates into amazing functional diversity. Thus proteins have great potential for use as building blocks in order to construct tailored designed systems, including nanofabrication and generation of novel protein-based biomaterials. We explore the potential of proteins as building blocks toward the generation of functional nanostructures and bioinspired materials for applications in nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine. In particular, our main objective is to develop versatile platforms based on simple protein building blocks for the fabrication of multiple protein-based hybrid functional nanostructures and biomaterials.
