AME 60679 - Nanoparticles in Biomedicine
Nanoparticles are used in biomedicine in a growing number applications, including biosensing, diagnostic imaging, and therapeutics. Nanoparticle science and engineering will be introduced including the processing (synthesis and surface modification), structure (physical and molecular), and functional properties (biological, electrical, magnetic, mechanical, optical, X-ray, etc.) that enable these, and other, biomedical applications.
CBE 30361 (or consent of the instructor).
The course objectives and content will be ideal for graduate students and seniors interested in advanced study.
Objectives and Content:
The goal of this course is to provide a fundamental framework for understanding science and application of nanoparticles in biomedicine. Emphasis will be given to the processing (synthesis and surface modification), structure (physical and molecular), material properties (biological, electrical, magnetic, mechanical, optical, X-ray, etc.), and functional performance that enables biomedical applications in drug delivery, diagnostic imaging, biosensing, and tissue regeneration
Coursework will include homework assignments, projects, a midterm and a final exam. Class projects will include an oral presentation and a critical review on topics chosen by the student
