Explore the use and implications of nanotechnology in new medical applications

Nanotechnology is used to control and manipulate nanometer-sized matter with nanometer precision. This can be atoms, molecules, or larger biological structures such as DNA or living cells. This online course explores the potential of nanotechnology in medical applications, to create new devices that can be used to diagnose a disease or monitor a medical treatment.

This course is designed for anyone with an interest in nanotechnology or medicine. Some of the technical sections of the course require undergraduate-level mathematics and physics, but these sections are not required to understand the main part of the course.
