The course will address state-of-the-art applications in medical science based on nanoscience.
The course is based on (a) introductory lectures in class on advanced methods in nanoscience to investigate biological systems at the nanoscale in artificial systems and in cells. It also includes compulsory graded assignments done in small groups for (b) theoretical laboratory exercise and (c) critical reading and presentations of recently published reviews and articles in the field.
The overall aim of the course is to learn and understand how biological molecules and/or nanomaterials can be exploited to gain novel biological information and develop novel bioanalytical assays. After completing the course, the student can expect to have acquired basic knowledge and methodological know-how about.
1 - Design of new biomolecules with new built-in biochemical functions
2 - Techniques for analyzing nanoscale molecules and materials
3 - Design of nanomaterials and equipment for biological studies at nanoscale
4 - Competences for interacting biological molecules complexes with surfaces.
• Establish protocol and analyse experiments based on bioimaging
• Critical reading and discussion about scientific articles in the field
1 - explain the objectives and methods used in experimental nanoscience
2 - describe a variety of applications of nanobioscience including detailed specifications for the application
3 - discuss the relationship between materials and their use in nanobioscience (principles, technical challenges, etc.)
lectures, theoretical lab-exercises, tutorials and work in group
review and original articles in the field of nanoscience
chapters from textbook (The Cell)
The course requires a preliminary knowledge in biochemistry
(Nanobio 1 and Nanobio 2 or other course in biochemistry).
It is a multidisciplinary course suitable for students with various backgrounds including nanoscience, biophysics, medicinal chemistry, molecular medicine, biochemistry.
The course is similar to the discontinued course NKEB15000U
Nanobio 3. Therefore you cannot register for NKEB21003U - Nanobio
3, if you have already passed NKEB15000U Nanobio 3 but you can
consider individual research projects on the topic.
The course is a multidisciplinary course suitable for students with various backgrounds (see above for recommended academic qualifications).
The student gets:
- Regular oral and written feedback on the electronic quiz
- oral and written collective feedback on their theoretical laboratory protocols and reports
- individual oral and written feedback on their oral presentations
- Individual written feedback at the end of the course summarizing graded assignments and final exam.
- 7,5 ECTS
