Syllabus - 2010



Fall 2010

Room: 4515 BSRB

Time: Mondays, 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Instructor: Daniel Q. McNerny

The Nanobiology Certificate Program aims to integrate students from a number of existing graduate programs within this interdisciplinary research structure and thereby to provide a coherent strategy for educating students more broadly in nanobiology while still maintaining intellectual depth in a core discipline.

The key features of the training program will be the breadth of the required course work, a requirement for multidisciplinary research experience, and the creation of a new student-led seminar program. They are:

  • Complete a nanoscience class within his or her Ph.D. area (3 credits).

  • Complete two nanoscience classes outside of his or her specific Ph.D. area (6 credits)

  • Perform collaborative research in a second laboratory or with a second research group

  • Attend APPPHYS514-099 seminar series (2 credits/semester, 3 semesters)  THIS IS NOW: Physics 517 Nanobiology Certificate Seminar

Required Seminar:

In order to ensure intellectual cohesion and exchange of knowledge between students within the training program, a research seminar will be required.


Goals for seminar are:

  • Professors discussing basic science research and clinical translation

  • Academic and industrial career related

  • Tools for multidisciplinary research (effective communication skills, CV/research plan)

Fall 2010 Seminar Schedule:

Room: 4515 BSRB

Time: Mondays, 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
