Module I: This will focus on various characterization tools, ranging from electrical, mechanical, materials and optical characterization. The trainees will be provided hand-on experience and training on the most critical and typical tools, including but not limited to Raman and FTIR (optical), probe station (electrical), SEM and Zeta (Material) and AFM and Rheometer (Mechanical). There will also be hands-on demonstrations of using tools like XRD, TEM, with special focus on acquiring and analyzing data and Optical and Electrical Characterization tools: Probe station, Raman, FTIR, UV-Vis
Module II: This will focus on synthesis and fabrication aspects of nanoscience, that are typically not taught to biologists and doctors. Specifically, we will provide hands-on training in lithography and microwave synthesis techniques, some of which will be carried out in clean environments to provide the trainees hands on experience and exposure to clean room practices.
Module III: The purpose of this research module will be to mimic a real nanobio research problem in therapeutics, where the trainees will synthesize nanoparticles, characterize them in SEM and Zeta, and most importantly evaluate their potential for magnetic hyperthermia applications. Special focus will be given to quantitative estimates in a rigorous manner.
Module IV: The purpose of this research module will be to mimic a real nanobio research problem in biosensing, where the trainees will develop a multimodal sensing device, combining fluorescence and electrochemical sensing. Special focus will be given to quantitative estimates and rigor, especially with respect to specificity and presence of interfering signals.
Always book your train ticket in advance so that you won't miss the chance once you get the selection.
