Precision Nanomedicine

Micro and nanotechnolgies allow us to detect and treat various diseases more effectively. You will learn how to synthesize and characterize those materials/ devices and deliver them to a site causing the diseases. You will also gain the most updated knowledge in recent applications of those technologies to see how we use them to improve human healthcare.

We develop micro and nanotechnologies we can bring from bench to bedside. The unique capability we can gain in micro and nanoscale regimes provides us with unparalleled sensitivity and specificity in targeting diseases and addressing unmet needs in the diagnosis of various diseases. We are making efforts to commercialize the technologies we develop in BME at UNIST, which could benefit an enormous number of patients who are in desperate need of new therapeutic and diagnostic strategies.
