Nanomedicine is a named program consisting of courses meeting the requirements
for a Biomedical Minor and Materials Science Minor. The Area of Concentration
courses are focused around premedicine. This is a multidisciplinary
field striving to understand biological processes and material interactions
on the nanoscale.
Program advisors are Dr. Sean
Agnew (MSE) and Dr. Kimberly
Kelly (BME). Nanomeds are fully integrated into two undergraduate
communities, BME & MSE.
Students in the program will be uniquely positioned to take part in
some of U.Va's most exciting undergraduate research opportunities.
UVa's NanoStar Institute coordinates cutting edge research at the intersection of biology, chemistry, biomedical engineering, materials science and medicine.
