BIONANOTECHNOLOGY for Diagnosis and Therapy of Cancer

Dates & Venue
May 19 – 30
Departament of Biology, University of Minho
Course Info
Several concepts important for the development of nanobiodevices as potential solutions for the diagnosis and therapy of cancer will be approached. The course will focus on the production techniques necessary for target cancer cells as well as the tests necessary for product validation. The course will also give a broad overview on cancer and current cancer therapies and diagnosis. Practical sessions will give participants hands-on experience in testing nanoparticles against cancer cells.
