Graduate Certificate Program in Biomedical Science and Engineering with Concentration in Nanotechnology

**COMING SOON TO THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO**


Total of 15 credit hours to complete certificate

Required Courses

  • Colloidal Nanocrystal Biomedical Applications
  • Social and Ethical Issues in Nanotechnology
  • Advanced Techniques in Light Microscopy

The remaining 9 credit hours will be completed by selecting from a list of approved courses.

During the academic year, all IGERT Graduate Trainees will have to attend a weekly seminar devoted to presentations of their research results and discussions of challenges they may be encountering. Student's advisors will participate in these seminars to create an atmosphere of collegiality and collaboration between all research groups involved in the INCBN program.

Participating in the program will:

  1. Broaden the perspective of all INCBN Graduate Trainees through cross-disciplinary coursework meshed with their disciplinary education. These courses will expose all INCBN students to novel approaches to biomedical problems.
  2. Integrate quantitative and biomedical approaches to problem solving through the Cell Signaling and QD courses.
  3. Share knowledge across discipline boundaries throuh student participation in journal clubs, research meetings, seminars, and workshops. In particular, students and investigators will be mixed in environments that both challenge and facilitate communication between disciplines with minimal jargon and with the utmost clarity.
  4. Interact with complementary interdisciplinary programs at other institutions abroad in order to share knowledge, approaches, and expertise.
