This is a group of lectures and seminars aiming at presenting how biomedicine can profit from nanotechnology. Fundamental concepts in nanotechnology will be given. Those include the relevance of surface, colloids, or the nanometer scale. Then the lectures will cover key aspects of the synthesis of nanostructured materials (top down versus bottom up approaches), material and biological characterization techniques (like optical microscopies, spectroscopy, zeta potential, hyperspectral imaging, nanotoxicity, bio-distribution), and biomedical applications (i.e., control release of drugs, bio-sensing, imaging, hyperthermia among others).
