Overview

M. Sc. Nanobiotechnology focuses on Biomedical and translational nanotechnology.

This new MSc program is outlined to give more focus towards original research where the Master’s student could perform hands-on research and publish at least one scientific publication in peer-reviewed international journals, during the two-year course duration. The program aims to produce highly skilled individuals suited for the fast changing requirements of today’s advanced workforce. To achieve this aim, the research facility at ACNSMM has one of the best research infrastructures in the country and has been recognized as a ‘Thematic Unit of Excellence’ under the Nanomission program, Govt. of India.

Overview

The Nanobiotechnology programme is focused on biomedical nanotechnology, wherein students explore the advanced applications in the biomedical area. Such applications include new implant technologies, regenerative engineering, new nanomedicines to combat cancer and drug resistance, targeted medicines for treatment with reduced side effects, diagnostic technologies using nanomaterials etc. The course covers in-depth nanomaterials and their properties, nanosystems design, the physics and chemistry of nanomaterials and applications of nanotechnology to the biomedical area, including engineering of scaffolds and the engineering of devices at the nanoscale for diagnostics and treatments. The program also offers clinical exposure in one of the many operation theatres of the hospital to help students develop an understanding of the medical applications of nanotechnology. This is a pioneering program that aims to develop an all-round scientist and technologist with interdisciplinary specialization in three areas– nanotechnology, biotechnology and medical sciences.
