Course number: NKEB15000U

Course content

with novel applications in medicine, environment and safety. The course will address state-of-the-art applications in the field. It will be based on introductory lectures on the topics and critical reading of recent articles and reviews. The course will also contain lab exercises in small groups.

There are several assignments:
1- lab reports
2- presentation of scientific article (oral presentation of an article (20 mn) + acting as opponent for two other articles presented during the course)

Learning outcome

Learning outcome:
The overall goal of the course is to learn and understand how biological molecules and / or nanomaterials can be exploited for novel biological applications. Completing the course the student is expected to have acquired basic principles about:
•    Design of new biomolecules based on their intrinsic properties
•    Techniques for investigations at the nanoscale level
•    Design of nanomaterials & devices for biological investigation
•    Interface of biological complexes with surfaces
•     Establish protocol and run experiments using state-of-the-art equipment available in the bionanolab
•    Critical reading and discussion about scientific articles in the field
1. Explain the goal and methods used in the experimental part.
2. Describe several types of applications of bionanoscience with their specificities
3. Discuss interface between material / biological sample (principle, technical challenges, ..).
