Nanoengineered Biomaterials for Advanced Drug Delivery explores the latest advances in the applications of nanoengineered biomaterials in drug delivery systems. The book covers a wide range of biomaterials and nanotechnology techniques that have been used for the delivery of different biological molecules and drugs in the human body. It is an important resource for biomaterials scientists and engineers working in biomedicine and those wanting to learn more on how nanoengineered biomaterials are being used to enhance drug delivery for a variety of diseases. Nanoengineered biomaterials have enhanced properties that make them more effective than conventional biomaterials as both drug delivery agents, and in the creation of new drug delivery systems. As nanoengineering becomes more cost-effective, nanoengineered biomaterials have become more widely used within biomedicine.
