Recent cutting-edge, translational research in diagnostics and nano-therapies is having a major influence on how we treat and prevent cancer and cardiovascular diseases. This course covers state-of-the-art and emerging bio-sensors, bio-chips, imaging modalities and nano-therapies studied in the context of human physiology—the nervous system, circulatory system and immune system.
