Nanomedicine Short Course

Nanotechnology offers devices, materials, and approaches that are increasingly being applied to the life sciences. There is growing interest in building more interdisciplinary collaboration to exploit nanotechnology in the fields of medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, and pharmaceutics, as well as other bioscience areas such as plant science and bioengineering.

To support these collaborations and further the spread of nanoscience techniques into the life sciences, the University of Minnesota’s Nano Center sponsors an annual two day conference on the biomedical applications of nanotechnology.

The 2020 Nanomedicine short course will be held June 10-11 in the Physics and Nanotechnolgy Building, located on the University's East Bank campus.


The first day of the short course features speakers presenting their current research into applying nanotechnology to the life sciences.

On day two of the short course, attendees take part in a hands-on laboratory session to learn more about some of the techniques used in the field. This session is intended for those new to the field of nanobio.
