Teaching

  • PMNM02 Diagnostics and Imaging

    Nanotechnology may lead to more rapid diagnostic tests, implantable devices, point of care instruments and improved medical imaging. This module will explore the application of nanotechnology to various medical techniques, focussing on novel research devices, pre-clinical tools and emerging technology within hospitals.

  • PMNM04 Nanomedicines and Therapeutics

    The module will explore the history and development of molecular medicines. Using landmark technology and chemical development phases, the traditional small chemical entities using in molecular medicine will be outlined, using drugs such as taxols and tamoxifen as exemplars. The common target oncology and non oncology disorders will outlined and their respective targets for such medicines detailed alongside drug modes of action and delivery (IV and oral). Further exploration of targeted nanoparticle delivery, from early first generation drugs such as Abraxane to second generation biologically targeted SMART delivery systems, will expand the knowledge to future molecular medicines such as antibody drug conjugates and kinase inhibitors. Excitingly the module will include guest lectures from industry and clinicians, covering the spectrum of drug development to delivery and clinical considerations.
