Opportunities and Challenges in Nanomedicine

Charles Roth (Chemical and Biochemical Engineering; Biomedical Engineering)

This seminar will introduce students to opportunities and progress to date in nanomedicine, the application of nanotechnology to human health. Both technical methodologies and economic/social/regulatory considerations will be discussed. A number of the class meetings will feature instructorguided discussions based on readings from both the scientific literature and popular press. Students will also be introduced to nanomedicine research at Rutgers through laboratory demonstrations or tours and via informal talks given by current undergraduate and graduate researchers.
