Graduate students who complete their PhD requirements in their home department and the training program requirements will receive a Certificate of Advanced Study in Nanobiotechnology.
Why a Certificate?
This training program focuses on creating new knowledge and new technologies at the interface of nanoscience and medicine. The training program is intended to provide engineers and scientists with a multidisciplinary approach to gaining expertise not only in their field of study but also in the fields of their peers who participate in the program. Students learn through traditional lecture and laboratory courses as well as peer-to-peer learning in tutorials. Co-advising provides a broad, multidisciplinary peer group in addition to the peer group in their home department.
* All participating departments have approved these three courses to count towards the elective requirement for the PhD
Note: Fellows that are supported by the Cancer Engineering Predoctoral Fellowship (CNTC) do not receive a certificate.
