Biochemical Design Through Drug-Delivery Systems Course

Biochemical Design Through Drug-Delivery Systems Course to Start Late October
In this course, students will be introduced to the biological and chemical aspects of various drug delivery systems. Students will research, design and conduct an experiment as it relates to drug delivery in medicine. Biodegradable alginate capsules will be made and used as an analogy to a drug delivery system currently being researched at the nano-scale. The students will experiment with the time-release properties of these capsules and present their findings. (Grades 9-12) Required: laptop computer


Fridays, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm (ten weeks)
