Program Name: Biomedical Sciences
Course Name: Fundamentals of Nanomedicine Course Id: 6805
Nanomedicine is the application of nanostructured materials in medicine. Nanomedicine approaches are now being widely explored as diagnostic tools and novel therapeutics. This course will cover the synthesis of multifunctional nanoparticles, their characterization, applications in imaging (optical imaging, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging) and applications in therapy (drug delivery, genetic therapies and tissue engineering). There will be a focus on the underlying concepts that control nanoparticle properties and interactions in vivo.
