Advanced Nanobiotechnology

2022/2023

Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module builds on knowledge obtained by the project on NB2 (2nd semester).

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

This project focuses on all kinds of advanced biostructures and their static and dynamic properties.

Different advanced nanobiostructures will be manufactured and/or modeled and their static and dynamic properties will be characterized using state-of-the-art scientific tools, techniques and theories.

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Knowledge of the subject-specific methods as well as tools applied for the design, fabrication, characterization, and modeling of the biological and organic nanostructures.
  • Knowledge of the biological, physical, and (bio)chemical principles behind the subject.

Skills

  • Ability to approach, describe, and solve a specific problem using the tools available.
  • Ability to explore and achieve sufficient understanding of the state-of-the-art methods and principles used in the project.
  • Ability to define the limits of the project.
  • Ability to reflect over the obtained results.
  • Compose a project report according to the norms of the scientific field, include relevant original literature, use correct academic language and communicate the project's research-based basis and problem and results in a coherent written and oral manner, including the connection between the problem formulation, the project's execution and the main conclusions.
  • Evaluate and select relevant original literature and current scientific methods, models and other tools used in the project work, as well as assess the project's problem in relevant technical scientific context.

Competences

  • Should be able to identify, formulate, and analyze independently a problem.
  • Should have the necessary skills to identify and apply the relevant scientific theories and methods to the formulated problem.
  • Plan, implement and manage complex and unpredictable research and / or development tasks and assume a professional responsibility for conducting professional and interdisciplinary collaborations.
  • Take responsibility for own academic development and specialization.
