This summer Short Programs is offering a number of 2-5 day short courses taught by MIT faculty and experts, including several by members of the Chemistry Department. These courses provide an opportunity to learn crucial knowledge and skills from some of the top experts in their respective fields, in areas of MIT expertise. For complete details on all of the available courses, visit the Short Programs web site.
Below is a list of courses taught by members of the MIT Chemistry Department:
Flow Chemistry: Continuous Synthesis and Purification of Pharmaceuticals [10.65s]
June 25-27, 2012 | $2,200 | 1.5 CEUs
Lead Instructors: T. Jamison, K. Jensen
Overview of principles and technologies of continuous synthesis and purification of small molecules. Covers advantages and challenges of flow in comparison to batch, decision process for selecting between continuous or batch methods for a particular problem, automation and scale-up strategies. Emphasizes cutting-edge methods, technologies, and case studies.
Controlled Release Technology: Polymeric Delivery Systems for Pharmaceuticals, Proteins, and Other Agents [10.02s]
July 9-13, 2012 | $3,250 | 2.7 CEUs
Lead Instructor: R. Langer
Additional lectures by: A .Klibanov
Review the field and assess the prospects of future developments in the delivery and stabilization of chemicals and drugs. Topics include delivery methods and applications, with emphasis on controlled release in the pharmaceutical and medical fields. Regulatory and patent considerations will be addressed.
Solar Energy: Capturing the Sun [PI.70s]
July 23-27, 2012 | $3,500 | 3.0 CEUs
Lead Instructor: D. Nocera
This course will focus on sunlight, a sustainable and renewable carbon-neutral energy source. Science targeting efficient utilization of solar energy is inherently interdisciplinary, involving biology, inorganic and organic synthesis, solid state chemistry and physics, electrochemistry, chemical kinetics and mechanism, and theoretical and computational chemistry/biology. In addition, it involves concepts of homogeneous and interfacial science between solids, liquids, and gases. The course will focus on the science needed from these disciplines to develop the fundamental enabling science that will contribute to and ultimately lead to a solution of delivering clean energy, in the form of chemical fuels, produced from the sun.
