Program Description: 

While nanotechnology refers to the "research and technology development at atom and molecule levels at scales of 1-100 nm to achieve a basic understanding of phenomena and materials at the nanolevel, using structures, devices and systems with new features and performance due to their small size", outstanding features of nanomedicine are using nanodevices and nanostructures, engineered at the nanoscale, to make diagnosis, provide treatment and prevent diseases. Tools used in nanomedicine range from drug delivery systems and nanobiosensors to nanorobots and nanoscaffolds. It depends on a number of disciplines, including physics, engineering, chemistry, and biology, and aims to improve the quality of life through enormous developments in health-care sectors.

Due to the increasing growth rate of science and technology in nanomedicine and more and more investments in this field, the quality of human life is expected to substantially improve in the near future. As a result, universities and higher education institutions are required to plan and implement programs for training and developing required human resources in various fields of nanomedicine. Thus, training and educating skilled human resources majored in nanomedicine to continue their studies at the Ph.D. level is considered as the main mission of our educational program.
