Environmental and Biological Nanoscience programme at University of Birmingham is research focused, with a large part devoted to an independent but supervised research project carried out in state-of-the-art-laboratories.
The programme is a collaborative endeavour between the Environmental Health Science group in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the School of Biosciences. Taught and research elements are undertaken concurrently.
This MRes is designed for those with interests in human and environmental health implications of nanoparticles and is recommended for those both in work and just leaving undergraduate education, with interests in nanoscience and its implications for health, safety and the environment.
Manufactured nanoparticles and nanomaterials offer many potential socio-economic, health and environmental benefits as a result of the novel properties and behaviour that materials can exhibit when manufactured at the nanoscale.
While the production of nanomaterials is undergoing exponential growth, their biological effects and environmental fate and behaviour are relatively unknown.
