Nanomedicine Short Course

Announcing the Second Annual 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 and Institute for Engineering in Medicine present the 2019 Nanomedicine Short Course.

The course will be held June 6-7, 2019 in the Physics and Nanotechnolgy Building, on the University's East Bank campus.

  1. On June 6, seven speakers will present their current research into applying nanotechnology to the life sciences. This session is open to all.

  2. The following day on June 7, preregistered attendees will take part in a hands-on laboratory session to learn more about the techniques used in the field. This session is intended for those new to the field of nanobio.

A tentative schedule for the June 6 talks is below.

Short Course Registration

Registration is encouraged for the June 6 presentation session, and is required for the June 7 hands-on lab session, which is limited to 20 attendees. You will receive confirmation via email if you register for the June 7 session.


Recap of the 2018 Nanomedicine Short Course

The Midwest Nano Infrastructure Corridor hosted our first annual Nanomedicine Short Course on June 13-14, 2018. The short course offered attendees an introduction to the world of nanomedicine, covering topics including nano-biosensors and nanoparticle drug delivery.
