This short course is designed to provide information needed to apply nanotechnologies in drug formulation and delivery. The course provides a comprehensive introduction to nanomedicine with an emphasis to current successful applications of nanoparticles in the therapy of various diseases, including but not limited to cancer and bacterial/fungal infections. The course will also present the biological requirements and safety assessments needed and developed for nanoparticles. A final review on the future of nanomedicine will detail the most modern concepts and applications of nanotechnologies in biomedical research.
This short course is associated with the August Land O Lake Pharmaceutical Analysis Conference.
