Course content

The course will focus on uses of nanotechnology in therapy. In detail, the course will cover clinical biomaterials, biocompatibility issues, tissue engineering including stem cells, and higher order structuring of engineered tissues. Furthermore the course will cover nanoscale advanced drug delivery systems fundamentals, design, synthesis, and uses. In addition, environmental, physiological, cellular and molecular toxicological limitations of industrially encountered nanoparticles will be covered. This course focuses on biomedical uses of nanotechnologies and less on the technologies themselves.

Learning outcome

After completing the course MOL3015, the student should be able to:
-understand how nanotechnological approaches can be used in biomedical therapies
-understand biomaterials and interaction of biomaterials with cells, body fluids and tissues
-understand basic stem cell biology and corresponding requirement for tissue engineering
-understand the need, obstacles and solutions for polymeric, lipidous and solid nanosized drug delivery systems
-understand the toxicological aspects of nanosized surfaces and particles
-find, refer and evaluate available information

Learning methods and activities
