This five-day intensive course provides a thorough introduction to the exciting and emerging field of bionanotechnology. Each of the five days of the Nanotechnology Summer School has a dedicated theme and is led by key researchers in the field. The course will be valuable to those seeking an introduction to current research and applications in the subject.

The first day of the Summer School gives an introduction to cell biology and bionanotechnology. The following four days focus on bioanalytical techniques; applied genomics and proteomics; nanoparticles, nanostructures and biomimetics; and the interaction of nanomaterials with biological systems, respectively.

The full Summer School programme will be as follows:
  • 30 June 2014: Introduction to Cell Biology and Bionanotechnology
  • 1 July 2014: Introduction to Bioanalytical Techniques
  • 2 July 2014: Applied Genomics and Proteomics
  • 3 July 2014: Nanoparticles, Nanostructures and Biomimetics
  • 4 July 2014: Interaction of Nanomaterials with Biological Systems
  • Delegates are able to enrol for one day, more than one day or for the whole week - discounts are offered for students and those enrolling for all five days.
