Biomaterials Science University of Tsukuba

Course Overview

In this course, the students will get an overview about achievements and current trends in the field of biohybrid systems for innovative applications in Life Science. The biohybrid systems discussed are conjugates and molecular assemblies consisting of biogenic molecules (biomolecules such as proteins or lipids) and abiogenic compounds and materials (e.g., synthetic polymers, amphiphiles or inorganic particles). Methods of biohybrid preparation and characterization will be presented with a critical evaluation of current and possible future applications, for example in medicine and biotechnology. The focus will be mainly on peptide- and protein-polymer conjugates due to the diverse functionalities of peptides and proteins for a broad range of applications.

Learning Achievement

The course consists of 10 lectures, each 75 min. The topics presented and discussed in the lectures are scheduled as follows.

Competence

Expertise, English language proficiency

Course prerequisites

Grading Philosophy

The “paper summary report” (approximately two or three A4 pages long) has to be sent to the teacher electronically (as doc file and as PDF) until not later than three weeks after the course finished, together with a PDF of the paper summarized (including Supplementary Information, if applicable).
The “paper summary report” will be evaluated (100 %) according to the following grades: A+ (achieved the goal with excellence); A (achieved the goal with good results); B (achieved the goal); C (achieved the minimum goal); D (did not achieve the goal).
