Course description
  • Explore the use and implications of nanotechnology in new medical applications
  • 4 weeks
  • 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.
  • Introduction to the technology and science of nanotechnology.
  • The relation between nanotechnology and medical applications.
  • The impact and possible consequences of new techniques for ethical questions and societal behaviour.
  • Introduction to the underlying science and technology of nanotechnology developments and of the techniques used to produce devices that use nanotechnology.
  • Nano and breath: Electronic nose; Nano and blood: Lab-on-a-chip; Nano and urine: Cancer detection.
  • Example cases where new technology is not an independent development but arises from societal questions, and in turn also creates new societal and ethical questions.
  • Describe technology and the science of nanotechnology
  • Investigate the relationship between nanotechnology and the medical application
  • Engage in the underlying science and technology and techniques used to fabricate nano devices
  • Discuss societal and ethical questions that arise from new technological developments in the health domain
  • 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.
  • University of Twente
  • As a young and entrepreneurial university in the Netherlands, the University of Twente prepares young people to tackle the grand challenges the world will be facing during the coming decades.
