Nanotechnology Degree Programs at Amrita Centre for Nanosciences
This M.Sc. program will provide training in the field of Molecular Medicine. Molecular medicine is the study of molecular and cellular phenomena in biological systems that enhances our understanding of human diseases and facilitates discovery research in disease prevention, diagnosis and therapy. Molecular Medicine offers new scientific tools to address mechanistic aspects of different diseases, both in diagnostics and therapy.
This is a two year course in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology with an application focusing on energy science such as Photovoltaics, Batteries, Supercapacitors, Hydrogen Storage and Carbon Capture. There are basic foundation courses in Physics and materials, followed by subject core courses dealing with nanotechnology specialization such as design of nanosystems, nanomaterials and their processing, properties and characterization, applications of nanomaterials to energy, etc.
The course is designed in such a way that students can explore in depth the application of nanotechnology to biomedical areas. The applications include new implant technologies, regenerative engineering, new nanomedicines to combat cancer and drug resistance, targeted medicines for treatment with reduced side effects, diagnostic technologies using nanomaterials etc.
