Summary

 

Molecules and Energetics 1 - BIOE40008

Aims

This module aims to provide students with a fundamental understanding of the chemistry and materials science principles related to Bioengineering including:

The main functional groups in organic molecules, their roles in building more complex structures and functionalising surfaces.

The main techniques for identifying and characterising engineered molecules

The foundations of classical thermodynamics and applications in biomedical engineering and molecular sciences

Chemical kinetics, Fick's laws and steady state diffusion

This module also aims to build the wet lab skills of students including:

Preparing a range of biomaterials and practice with the main techniques used for classifying such materials

Role

Lecturer

Nanotechnologies for cancer diagnosis and cancer therapy - BIOE97173

Aims

This module will introduce you to the latest nanotechnological advances in the field of cancer diagnostics and cancer therapies. This course will show how academic research can lead to applied science with direct impact on the way cancer patients are screened, diagnosed, monitored and treated. In particular, you will learn how molecular bioengineering has applications in the following fields: - Development of minimally invasive screening tools (e.g. based on liquid biopsies) - Diagnosis at the point of care (low-cost, automated technologies) - Nanotechnologies for targeted drug delivery - Novel therapeutic approaches for Cancer
