GHHE 000/5440 - Nanotechnology: Scope and Frontiers in Precision Health (3 cr.)



Description
This introductory Nanotechnology course will provide background information on Nano synthesis, assembly, characterization with examples that are advanced in preclinical and clinical development. Novel nanoparticles have various applications across different industries including: data storage, photonic, microelectronic, energy, pharmaceutical, biomedical, tissue engineering, cell therapeutics, and cosmetics. An interesting aspect of nanoparticles is the wide range of materials classes in which nanoparticles are useful including semiconductor, metallic, ceramic, composite and polymer nanoparticles, including the unconventional and highly interesting topic dealing with nanoparticles in cosmetics such as whitening agents, moisturizers and antiaging products. This course is designed for professionals working across disciplines and industries seeking exposure to the latest advances as it applies to the biomedical sciences and medicine. This course is designed towards advancing the advantages offered by nanotechnology in affecting early diagnostics, efficacious therapy and mitigated toxicity. It is geared towards scientists, researchers, production managers and technical managers within materials, physical science and pharmaceutical industries, pharmacy, medicine and regulatory bodies in compliance with international guidelines.
