Nanomaterials for Theranostics and Tissue Engineering provides information on the major methodologies for the application of nanomaterials in the medical field. In recent years, nanotechnology for medicine, commonly known as bionanotechnology, or nanomedicine, has revolutionized various types of medical treatment. This book is intended for practicing engineers and scientists, and includes detailed, readily applicable protocols. The field is a highly interdisciplinary one, and therefore this book is designed to provide information on major techniques for those from a range of scientific backgrounds.The book focuses on 4 major themes:synthesis of nanosystems for controlled drug deliverynanotechnology-enhanced sensing systemsapplication of nanotechnologies to the synthesis of novel biomaterials.safety issues related to the application of medicinal nanotechnologyThis makes for a comprehensive overview of how nanotechnology is currently being used both medical treatments and tissue engineering, giving both materials scientists and engineers an insight into how nanotechnology is being used to advance biomedicine.
