Graduate course: Biosensors

Biosensors are analytical tools for the analysis of bio-material samples to gain an understanding of their bio-composition, structure and function by converting a biological response into an electrical signal. The aim of the course is to give an introduction of the main technologies used in the field of biosensors, from a theoretical and experimental approach. The students will be capable of design a glucose sensor, as a model for electrochemical biosensor.

Schedule: 10/14/2014 to 11/03/2014.
                  90 hs (Theory + Practice).
Location: FACET – Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Tecnología – UNT (Av. Independencia 1800 – S. M. de Tucumán, Tucumán, Argentina).
Fees:  Graduate students: ARS$ 800.
           Proffesionals: ARS$ 920.
           Limited places.

Graduate course: Introduction to evaluation of biomaterials

Evaluation of biomaterials is a compulsory step during development of new biomaterial-based technologies. Therefore, in this course we offer a theoretical and experimental approach to different stages of biomaterials assessment, beginning with biomaterial technology design up to performing early phases of in vivo characterization.

Schedule: 11/10/2014 to 11/14/2014.
                  Theory 8-12 hs – Laboratory: 14-18 hs.
                  40 hs (Theory) + 60 hs (Laboratory).
Location: FACET – Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Tecnología – UNT (Av. Independencia 1800 – S. M. de Tucumán, Tucumán, Argentina).
Fees: Theory: ARS$ 1000
          Theory+Practice: ARS$ 2000.
Pre-Registration: 09/15/2014 to 10/15/2014.
Registration: 10/16/2014 to 11/07/2014.
