The current e-learning programme focused on the basic applications of Nanotechnology in Health Sciences, in clinical and research level.
The present Basic Principles of nanotechnology applications in Health Science programme at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens provides a detailed description concerning the types of nanotools used in Health Sciences, the mechanism of their action, the route and the behavior of each nanotool inside a biological system.
Recent advances in nanotechnology offer the potential for early detection of several diseases as well increased therapeutic efficacy. In this context, the programme givesa thorough overview of nanoparticles current applications in diagnosis (including MRI, CT, PET, SPECT and Biophotonic modalities), therapy (including radiotherapy, treatment with radionuclides, photodynamic and photothermal therapy) and theranostics.
Following the applications of nanotechnology in human medicine, the programme describes the potential of applying nanotechnology in veterinary medicine regarding animal health, animal breeding and animal food safety.
Nowadays, nanotechnology has expanded its role in Agriculture and Food products. The course summarizes the applications of nanoparticles to the agro-food section, food packaging and supply chain. Moreover, relevant environmental, health and toxicological issues are highlighted.
