Enroll now! Coursera presents Nanotechnology and Nanosensors, Part1 with Dr. Hossam Haick

About the course:

Nanotechnology and nanosensors are broad, interdisciplinary areas that encompass (bio)chemistry, physics, biology, materials science, electrical engineering and more.

The present course will provide a survey on some of the fundamental principles behind nanotechnology and nanomaterials and their vital role in novel sensing properties and applications.

The course will discuss interesting interdisciplinary scientific and engineering knowledge at the nanoscale to understand fundamental physical differences at the nanosensors. By the end of the course, students will understand the fabrication, characterization, and manipulation of nanomaterials, nanosensors, and how they can be exploited for new applications.

Also, students will apply their knowledge of nanotechnology and nanosensors to a topic of personal interest in this course.

About Professor Hossam  Haick:

Professor Hossam Haick is an expert in the field of nanotechnology, nanosensors, and non-invasive disease diagnosis.

Prof. Haick is the recipient of the prestigious Marie Curie Excellence Award, ERC Award, and the FP-7 Health Award. He is also the recipient of more than 42 international honors and prizes for his achievements, including a Knight of the Order of Academic Palms (conferred by the French Government) and the “List of the World’s Top 35 Young Scientists”, and the Discovery Award of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Prof. Haick is the founder and the leader of a European consortium of eight universities and companies for the development of advanced generation of nanosensors for disease diagnosis. He also serves as an associate editor of the two journals and serves as an advisory consultant to the Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) – the world’s authority for chemical information – a senior scientific advisory member of several national and international companies and institutes, and as a scientific evaluator in the European Commission.
