Professional Science Masters in Biomedical Nanotechnology

The M.S. Program in Biomedical Nanotechnology will incorporate aspects of the Pharmaceutical Sciences curriculum with courses in Nanotechnology, Entrepreneurship and Law. The combination of these fields will result in a unique curriculum that will provide students with skills not only in the relevant science, but also in leadership, business and intellectual property law. Furthermore, the program directly addresses a core mission of the university; namely, the provision of practice-oriented educational programs in major scientific disciplines.
