BIOL 5340 Nano- and Micro- Systems for Biomedical Applications (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

This course covers the state-of-the-art biomedical and diagnostic systems utilizing nano- and micro- technologies. The course will cover fundamental aspects of the biomolecules (proteins, antibodies, DNA, siRNA, and peptides), nanosturctures and nanoarchitectures, microfluidic apparatus, etc. The course will also emphasize basic molecular properties, material preparation, characterization, and device fabrications. The introduction of integrated systems will be conveyed by case discussions related to biodetection, drug delivery, nanotherapeutics, and biointerfaces. Students will have an overview of "hot spots" of nanotechnology in biomedical applications and understand the general strategy to design devices and experiments to address issues in the biomedicine areas.
