CaNCURE trainees have the opportunity to participate in a variety of one-of-a-kind courses at NEU. These courses supplement the weekly scientific seminars and professional development activities offered through the CaNCURE program.
NNMD 5272 and 5274: Nanomedicine Seminar Series
This weekly seminar series presents scientific findings and innovations in the field of nanomedicine by leading researchers and clinicians. CaNCURE trainees are provided with the opportunity to directly interact with guest speakers (either in person or via live web interface) to further learn about challenges and opportunities in nanomedicine (Fall & Spring, 1 SH). See examples…
This course introduces science and engineering concepts important in nanomedicine. Through a combination of lectures and symposia, students are taught fundamentals of nanoscience and nanotechnology, followed by first-hand accounts of how these concepts can be applied to problems in medicine (Fall, 3 SH).
NNMD 5370: Nanomedicine Research Techniques
This course provides students with an in-depth look at nanomedicine theory, research methods, and instrumentation. Students gain hands-on experience in a wide range of laboratory techniques including nanoparticle synthesis, electron microscopy, spectroscopy, optical microscopy, NMR, MRI, and AFM (Spring, 3 SH).
Learn how to take ideas in nanomedicine, nanotechnology, and pharmaceutical sciences from concept to market. This course features weekly talks by venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, and regulatory officials. Fundamental concepts for market evaluation, raising capital, protecting intellectual property, and building a thriving business are introduced. Specialized topics including the FDA regulatory process and clinical trials are also covered (Spring, 3 SH).
Graduates of these courses have continued on to highly successful careers in healthcare and nanomedicine. You can download our latest report here.
