Teaching & Outreach

The Nanomedicine Lab logo.

Members of the Nanomedicine Lab 2.0 teach on the various degree programmes offered by the Faculty of Biology, Medicine & Health and the Faculty of Science & Engineering at the University of Manchester

The Nanomedicine Lab offers this bespoke and research-focused, one-year Master’s programme in the field nanotechnology for medicine with the newly launched
MSc in Nanomedicine by Research

All Nanomedicine Lab 2.0 faculty members and senior scientists design, coordinate, and deliver this course and aim to offer a unique experience to students interested in spending one year integrated within the Nanomedicine Lab. The philosophy of this MSc programme is to cultivate students that would like to explore a research career in nanomedicine.

The course is particularly suitable for students interested in exploring the possibility of a further research career in nanomedicine. Apply here.

The NanoWhales Project

The Nanomedicine Lab regularly volunteers on research expeditions for the Pelagos Cetacean Research Institute.

In the summer of 2019, the Nanomedicine Lab raised over £11,000 in order to fund a two-week scientific expedition to study the eastern Mediterranean sperm whale population. Three of our lab members volunteered to set sail across The Hellenic Trench, the deepest area of the Mediterranean Sea, to understand the threats facing our ocean’s giants. Together with marine biologists from the Pelagos Cetacean Research Institute, the project aimed to aid in the conservation and protection of the ocean and its inhabitants.

Small World Nanotech

In 2013, The Guardian commissioned a blog about new developments in nanotechnology called ‘Small World: Nanotech’. Kostas contributed seven articles that offer a transparent and honest view of nanotechnology and its superhuman expectations, as well as its very human limitations.

You can access all seven articles below.
