NANOTECHNOLOGY AND NANOMEDICINE
While the “nanotechnology”, which is defined as the scientific and industrial revolution of the 21st century, quickly enters in our life with the products in health, food, agriculture, textile, communication, transporting, defense industry, space and aircraft technologies, also creates new horizons in science and technology with the interdisciplinary research and development activities.
Many leading, research and development centers and firms in the world concentrate on the research in nanoscience and nanotechnology in order to increase international competetive capacity. The universities such as Washington, Stanford, Northeastern and institutes like MIT and Stevens found nanotechnology academic programs.
The Purposes of Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine (NNT) Interdisciplinary MSc and PhD graduate Program:
Hacettepe University, which has medicine, engineering and natural science areas in its organization, aims to have a voice in “Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine” and increase the international competetive capacity by training young and experienced individuals in graduate programs.
