Course Summary:

Nanoparticles are characterized by unique properties, which enabled them to become powerful tools for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. The huge amount of research in nanomedicine during the past few decades is now translating into many products on the market and a growing number in the pipeline.
This course aims to introduce you to this world, step by step starting from fundamental questions: What is nanotechnology? and why going nano? and moving on to introduce you to potential examples of these nano delivery systems as nanoparticles (polymeric, organic and inorganic), nanosuspensions, nanoemulsions, and liposomes.
The theoretical part will also include an illustration of particle size analysis techniques with a special highlight on dynamic light scattering.
This will be followed by a practical part where the attendees will prepare PLGA nanoparticles, CaCO3 nanoparticles, and liposomes and measure their size, size distribution and zeta potential using the Zetasizer instrument.
