It is expected that the undergraduate students develop competency in the activities covering the development and characterization of nanostructures aiming to obtain innovative products. The discipline will also allow the student to acquire skills in the preparation of different nanostructures. In addition, current regulations and the ethical aspects of nanotechnology applied to health sciences will be discussed.

Programa Resumido
Basic definitions: nanoscience and nanotechnology. Development and characterization of matrix and non-matrix nanostructures. Industrial scale methods in the manufacturing of nanostructured systems. Regulatory and ethical aspects of nanotechnology. Modified drug and bioactive release systems: opportunities and challenges.
1. Definitions and fundamentals: nanoscience and nanotechnology;
2. Properties of nanometer-scale materials: quantum confinement effects, properties due to size and surface effects;
3. Techniques of preparation of nanostructures (ascending and descending);
4. Techniques of physical-chemical and morphological characterization of nanostructures;
5. Regulatory and ethical aspects of nanotechnology applied to health sciences;
6. Innovation, patent and intellectual property.

1. Preparation and physical-chemical characterization of nanostructured lipid systems;
2. Preparation and physical-chemical characterization of nanocrystals of poorly soluble drugs in water.
Method The content of the course will be delivered in two modules. The first module will consist of theoretical classes and elaboration of work plan aiming the experimental development of nanostructure. The second one will be laboratorial classes.
Criteria The minimum grade for each module will be 5.0. The weight of the module evaluations will be the same. The final mean should be greater than or equal to 5.0 and frequency greater than 70%.
Norma de Recuperação
Recovey Students with a minimum frequency of 70% and an average grade of 3.0 to 4.9 may take a written test on the content at the beginning of the semester following the offering of the course.
