Teaching

Research-based teaching is a central part of our activities, where we strive to communicate the latest research topics and insights to university students, high-school students and the public. On this page you can find the activities that we are currently involved in in both teaching and outreach.


Courses Fall 2018

Biomolecular Structure and Function

Bachelor course in fall semester at Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics organized by Ditlev Brodersen. The course introduces biomolecular structure and function with a focus on biochemistry and has a nice focus on structural analysis in PyMOL and theoretical and experimental work on enzyme catalysis. The course is based on the text book "Biochemistry" by Berg et al. Read more in the course description.

Nanomedicine

Master course organized by Ken Howard. Read more in the course description.

Courses Spring 2019

Biomolecular Nanotechnology

Master course in Spring semester at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center organized by Ebbe S. Andersen. The course introduces the most recent topics in the rapidly developing research field of biomolecular nanotechnology and provides the student with experience in designing biomolecular nanostructures and systems. Read more in the course description.

Biomolecules in Nanoscience

Bachelor course in Spring semester at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center organized by Daniel Otzen. The course introduces biomolecular structure and function for the nanoscience educational programme. Based on the text book "Biochemistry" by Berg et al. the course describes nucleic acid and protein structure and how they function as nanomachines in the cell for enzyme catalysis, regulation and activation. Read more in the course description.

General biology

Bachelor course for nanoscience students on basic biology organized by Rikke Meyer. Read more in the course description.

Trends in Nanoscience - Communication and Entrepreneurship

Master course for nanoscience students. Read more in the course description.

Previous courses

Scientific Visualization

General skills PhD course on how to apply visual strategies and methods in your research project to generate ideas, make overviews of complex scientific data, and create new scientific hypotheses. You will learn how to present scientific results through figures for scientific papers, animations, review articles, conference abstracts, posters, and talks. The course ran first time in Spring 2017 and will likely be running again Spring 2019. Read more in the course description.
