Theory and application of nanotechnologies in biology and medicine. Strategies for studying the organization, function, and complexity of biological systems at nanometer scale. Several areas of research are covered, including high-resolution cellular and molecular imaging, spectroscopy, and optical tweezers.
• Gain conceptual knowledge of current nanotechnologies and their applicability for biological and biomedical research fields. • Know advantages and disadvantages of main nanotechnologies such as the highresolution microscopy and spectroscopy. • Understand how to formulate and test research hypothesis focusing on nanobiology topics such as the cell-cell communication, macromolecular structure / function and molecular recognition. • Contrast micro- and macro-worlds and their distinct organizational principles • Know physical and chemical laws and forces governing assembly of macromolecules and the main unit of life “the cell”. • Understand the hierarchy of supramolecular organization: from the bottom up. • Understand how to design and execute research project using combination of several different methods that include both a cutting edge and conventional techniques. • Describe pitfalls and recommend alternative strategies to meet goals of a proposed project. • Articulate knowledge of nanobiotechnology in writing and speaking
