Biomedical Applications of Colloidal Nanocrystals

A special topics course on "Biomedical Applications of Colloidal Nanocrystals" with an innovative format is being taught in Spring 2009. The course is co-taught by two faculties with science/engineering and cell biology expertise, invited lecturers, and students leading discussion of assigned papers, and includes tours of relevant facilities on campus and at Sandia National Laboratories. Problem-based learning assignments involve both teamwork in brainstorming sessions and development of individual writing skills through written reports. All of the new INCBN IGERT Trainees selected in 2008 are participating in the course, taking it for credit.
