Nanomedicine: Basic concepts, pre-clinical development and clinical translation



Nanotechnology is defined as the understanding and control of matter at dimensions of roughly 1 to 100 nanometers, a scale at which unique properties of materials emerge that can be used to develop novel technologies and products. Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology for biomedicine. Roughly, this involves the exploitation of nanotechnology for diagnostic purposes, for the generation of biomaterials, as well as the (systemic) administration of nanomaterials to the body. This course will focus on the latter category, in which biocompatible nanomaterials are designed for drug delivery, immunotherapy and diagnostic imaging
