from the how-to dept.
The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Extension program and the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) will present a three-day short course on "Integrating BioMEMS and Nanotechnology into a Commercial Product" on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles, from 15 to 17 April 2002. The course will present state-of-the-art research and technology in microelectromechanical systems (MEMs) and nanotechnology, with specific emphasis and applications in the biomedical field, and look at research into the construction of a hybrid organic/inorganic nanoscale systems, the basic mechanics of motor protein motion, and the technological foundation for functionally integrating manufactured devices. Four CNSI professors, James Gimzewski, James Heath, Carlo Montemagno, and Chih-Ming Ho, will participate and lecture on the various technologies. The course will address the commercialization of bio-MEMs and nanotechnology and the involvement of small and large companies within this emerging field.
The course fee is $1395. For more information on the course and registration, go to the course web page.
