dc.description.abstract Nanomedicine is fundamentally interdisciplinary and complex. Therefore, it requires utmost expertise in chemistry, biology, physics, and engineering. With rapid strides being made in nanotechnology, the field of nanomedicine is coming into being. As it is very new, it is a revolutionary time in the field of science. However, complications arise. First, because the field is so complex, methods, approaches, and goals vary immensely and it becomes enormously difficult to make sense of it.The purpose of this project is to provide a course outline for a survey course which could be taught at the undergraduate or graduate level to explain what the field is, what is being done, and how it is being done, as well as supplying some interdisciplinary training which was most likely not included in their previous training. In addition, a presentation which describes the course and the field of nanomedicine itself has been prepared and will be given at multiple venues, including the Butler University Undergraduate Research Conference in Spring 2008.An essay, in addition to the original aims of the project, has been included. This essay, titled "Nanomedicine: an Introduction" serves as an introduction to this hypothetical textbook.
