Nanobiomaterials: Nanostructured materials for biomedical applications covers an extensive range of topics related to the processing, characterization, modeling, and biomedical applications of nanostructured ceramics, polymers, metals, composites, self-assembled materials, and macromolecules. Novel approaches for bottom-up and top-down processing of nanostructured biomaterials are highlighted.

In addition, innovative techniques for characterizing the in vitro behavior and in vivo behavior of nanostructured biomaterials are considered. Applications of nanostructured biomaterials in dentistry, drug delivery, medical diagnostics, surgery and tissue engineering are examined.

Key Features

  • Provides a concise description of the materials and technologies used in the development of nanostructured biomaterials
  • Provides industrial researchers with an up-to-date and handy reference on current topics in the field of nanostructured biomaterials
  • Includes an integrated approach that is used to discuss both the biological and engineering aspects of nanostructured biomaterials
