About

Nanomedicine is a combination of nanotechnology and medicine. It provides new direction in medical diagnosis, monitoring and treatment at the level of single molecules or molecular assemblies at the “nano” scale. Additionally, continuing improvement in the pharmacological and therapeutic properties of drugs is driving the revolution in novel drug delivery systems.

The Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine course at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens provides with an easy and effective way, the challenges and general trends in pharmaceutical nanotechnology, and also explores new strategies to overcome limitations in drug delivery. This online course teaches effectively, the recent developments in the use of nanoparticles as drug delivery systems, to treat a wide variety of diseases.

An additional benefit is that students can participate from anywhere in the world: this gives the course a global perspective and students gain valuable information about the state of nanotechnology internationally. The course is fully supported by expert tutors who are experienced in both nanotechnology and online teaching. All of the above will be analyzed further and in detail in this online course part of the Nanotechnology-Nanomedicine category. After successfully completing the lessons, the participant will receive a training certificate.
