Course Description

This course studies the development and application of micro and nanotechnologies in medicine. Topics include biosensors, transduction mechanisms, and fundamentals of bio-microelectromechanical systems (BioMEMS). Recent progress in nano-scale sensors and systems will also be explored, including nanoparticle-based systems for targeted therapy, drug-delivery, and nanobiosensors.
