Each year the University of Oxford holds a Summer School which focuses on applications of nanotechnologies in a different field. Comprising presentations from leading researchers and practitioners from the University of Oxford and beyond, the Nanotechnology Summer School: An Introduction to Bionanotechnology is next due to take place in the summer of 2016 and will be essential for anyone with an interest in bionanotechnology.

In 2015 we currently expect to hold a Summer School on the topic of nanomedicine.

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.

Each individual day of the Nanotechnology Summer School covers a different topic. The first day 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.

We are not currently accepting enrolments for the next Nanotechnology Summer School as full details are yet to be announced. Once more information is available you will be able to enrol for one day, more than one day or for the whole week. Discounts are sometimes offered for students and those enrolling for all five days.
