Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Abstract

There has been a trend in the past decade to introduce a new paradigm of thinking about the manner in which architects, urban designer, and planners approach the design of built environments. This new paradigm places emphasis on the concept of sustainability, a concept with should be come the focus and goal of architectural education worldwide. Accordingly, the question that this paper addresses is: have we, architectural educators, reached to reconfigure our curricula in a manner that is based on sustainability?
