Ready For New Discoveries

Part-time master program NanoBiosciences & NanoMedicine will begin in January 2013-new methods for tumor therapy, techniques for targeted release of pharmaceuticals in the body or tissue and organ replacement procedures are just some examples of the application of nanotechnology in medicine. In this area, a new University course in Nano sciences and nano medicine developed by Danube University Krems in cooperation with the Technical University of Vienna and the University of Vienna gives an in-depth knowledge. Course start is in January 2013. For the in-service postgraduate master program in NanoBiosciences & NanoMedicine”, the three universities jointly contribute their expertise to provide interdisciplinary and practice-oriented training on latest state of knowledge to the participants. The University course is intended as preparation for the application in businesses engaged in nanotechnology-based questions in the field of biology and medicine. The Nanotechnology has become the basic technology for many scientific fields. Especially in the biotechnology and medicine, a nanotechnological approach has now become the most common method to gain new insights and to employ modern analysis techniques.

Know about the latest status of nanotechnological methods with particular emphasis on biology and medicine, the students this will enable to keep up with the latest research results and to apply the latest innovations in their daily work, “so Univ.-Prof. Dr. Erich Gornik, course Director of the Technical University of Vienna. Content and target groups in addition to the provision of basic knowledge in the fields of Biophysics, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, and molecular biology are the topics of tumor therapy, tissue engineering”(tissue engineering), drug delivery” (release), biocompatibility of materials, sensors and nano-analytical methods in the diagnosis of treated. The risks of nanotechnology are also discussed and critically reflected. The four-semester University course is structured in modules.

To enable an optimal compatibility study and vocational courses held blocked in Vienna and Krems. He aimed primarily at managers, researchers, policy makers, and VerkaufsmanagerInnen from science, medical and engineering courses. The University course is held in English and concludes with a master of Engineering (MEng). Registrations are immediately opposed taken.
