About this book

Increasing demand for and awareness of the applications of nanotechnology in medicine has resulted in the emergence of a new fast-growing multidisciplinary area - nanomedicine. This book offers comprehensive knowledge of and diverse perspectives on nanomedicine through two independent volumes. It aims to bridge the gap between nanotechnology and medicine through contributions by world-renowned experts from wide range of backgrounds including academia, industry, professional consultancy, and government agencies.

Each contribution integrates knowledge from a wide range of areas to present the fundamentals of new applications and products of nanomedicine, as well as an outlook for the future. This book can well serve as a reference and guide for students, academics, researchers, scientists, engineers, clinicians, government researchers, and healthcare professionals.

Reviews

“This considerable monograph devoted to nanomedicine … represents collection of scientific articles providing summary of the latest knowledge how the structure materials and devices at the molecular scale can ultimately gain clinical benefit. … This book provides a well-done and up-to-date review of hot topics in the field of medical application of nanotechnology.” (Alena Gabelova, Neoplasma, Vol. 62 (6), 2015)
