Course overview

This course provides an up-to-date overview of the rapidly developing area of bionanotechnology. Learn from a leading academic in the field who is based at the internationally recognised Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge.

The course is grounded in biomedical applications but the techniques you will learn are applicable to a range of industries including energy, agriculture and the environment. The interdisciplinary approach will allow you to develop a network of potential future collaborators.

Guided by our experts, you will explore the field through experiments and learn how to interpret and draw conclusions from your data. By the end of the course, you will be able to communicate your findings to a range of stakeholders to help secure project support and funding, and tackle challenging issues with bionano-inspired solutions.

What will I learn?

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • design a functional material or device using bionano elements
  • describe how bionanotechnology can be used to address current challenges in the fields of medicine and biosensing
  • choose and apply an appropriate Bionanotechnology strategy to existing solutions or structures
  • decide on analytical methods and appropriate combinations to be used to characterise a particular bionano system
  • make informed decisions on alternative analytical strategy based on cost/availability analysis
  • communicate the unique value proposition of your strategy and communicate this convincingly to a range of stakeholders

Study commitments

  • 8 hours per week
