NTSS 301-01 Natural Science “Nanomedicine”, Dr. Thaddeus Le-Vasicek, MWF, 1000-1050 (CRN 15011)
Nanomaterials, or materials with a dimension between 10-9 to 10-7 m, are an emerging technology that see commercial application in the fields of engineering, biology, physics, and chemistry. Nanomedicine is the application of nanomaterials for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease. Nanomedicine is growing branch of medicine that you are likely to encounter in your lifetime. This course provides a survey of the fundamental theories and general principles of nanomedicine. This course is designed specifically for students without a strong background in chemistry and will begin by introducing an elemental knowledge of chemistry. Then, the unique properties of nanomaterials are explored. Current and emerging applications in diagnosis, treatment, and drug delivery are discussed in the final segment of the course.
