BioNanotechnology and Nanomedicine: Applications in Cancer and Mechanobiology provides an introduction to basic concepts of nanotechnology in mechanobiology and in cancer. This is a highly interdisciplinary field of research where knowledge from various disciplines is presented and integrated. The course is team taught by faculty from Engineering and LAS. There are four main sections of the course; (i) introduction to nanotechnology and nanomedicine; (ii) biological concepts and cancer biology; (iii) applications in cancer, i.e. cancer nanotechnology; and (iv) applications in cellular mechanics, i.e. mechanobiology and nanotechnology. The course is intended for first year graduate students and upper level undergraduates.
