Nanomedicine Short Course 2018

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. The first day featured presenters from a variety of institutions and academic backgrounds, while the second day allowed participants to experience a hands-on lab session to learn more about techniques used in the field. Video sessions from the program can be found below. The workshop schedule is also available.
