Description

Nano-biotechnology plays an important role in medicine, health and the pharmaceutical industry. This book provides fundamental and applied information on all aspects of engineering involved in healthcare delivery processes and the biomedical field. Emerging Nanotechnologies for Medical Applications focuses on both commercial and premarket tools, and their applications within medicine, as well as the future outlook. Emerging Nanotechnologies for Medical Applications develops the concept of integrating different technologies along a hierarchical structure of biological systems, and clarifies biomechanical interactions on different levels, for the analysis of multi-scale pathophysiological phenomena. With a focus on nano-scale processes and biomedical applications, it will be shown how knowledge can be utilized in a range of areas, including diagnosis and treatment of various human diseases and in alternative energy production. This book is an important reference source for scientists and researchers involved in micro- and nano-engineering, bio-nanotechnology, biomedical engineering, nanomedicine, and industries involved with optical devices, computer simulation and pharmaceuticals.
