This one-day course is part of the Nanotechnology Summer School 2014 on nanotechnologies in biology. It can be taken individually or as part of the one-week Summer School.
The programme for the Interaction of Nanomaterials with Biological Systems course introduces applications of nanoparticles in medicine and healthcare, and discusses the fate of nanoparticles in the environment as well as their use for environmental remediation. Topics covered include:
- Nanoparticle interactions at the cellular level
- Nanomaterial interactions at a whole organism level
- Nanoparticles in medicine
- Nanoparticles and their fate in the environment
- Ecotoxicology of silver and zinc nanoparticles to freshwater microbial communities
- Uptake and effects of nanoparticles in soil invertebrates
