102—Nanotechnology in Biology and Medicine
Friday, October 9
HTC Conference Center
Combining nanotechnology and biotechnology allows researchers to study biological systems at the molecular level. The insight garnered from nano-bio research enables biomedical applications not only in treatment and prevention, but also in ultra-early detection. Additionally, nano-bio research is taking a proactive approach to the study of health and safety of nanoparticles.
At the end of the course, you will have a greater understanding of how nanoparticles interact with biological systems, why and how nanoparticles are tailored for specific applications, and how health, safety and environmental issues are addressed for nanoparticles.
