The book navigates you through subjects such as bionanotechnology, nanomedicine, nanotoxiclogy, dendrimers, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, and microscopy.
It is an authoritative book written for a broad audience. Nanotechnology in biology and medicine: methods, devices, and applications provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of nanomaterials that integrates interdisciplinary research to present the most recent advances in protocols, methods, instrumentation, and applications of nanotechnology in biology and medicine.
The book discusses research areas in medicine where nanotechnology would play a prominent role. These areas include:
oDetection of protein and probing DNA structure
oTumour destruction by heating and tumour dragging by magnets
oDiagnosis and biodetection of pathogens
oNew biomedical devices
oFluorescent biological markers
It is a valuable resource for engineers, scientists, researchers, and professionals in a wide range of disciplines whose focus remains on the power and promise of nanotechnology in biology and medicine.
The book also provides an overview of different legal doctrines that are relevant to nanotechnology and explains how they may apply in the development, commercialization, and use of nanoproducts.Societal implications and economical impacts of nanotechnology are also discussed.
Many images are included to provide concrete illustrations, to attract attention, to aid retention, and to enhance understanding of the world of nanobioengineering.
