Description

The application of nanotechnology to medicine is revolutionizing healthcare. This book focuses on the science and engineering driving this revolution, the fabrication of nanostructures for diagnosis and therapy, advanced imaging at the molecular scale and the application of nanoscale physics to bring novel solutions to the detection and treatment of disease. Particular emphasis is placed on hard nanotechnology (e.g. quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, silica) rather than the soft nanotechnology of molecular chemistry.

Key Features

  • Presents an overview the subject for physical scientists and engineers
  • Specific focus on new technologies that have entered the medical arena
  • Introduces applications and specific case studies by clinical researchers

Readership

Physical scientists, Engineers, Biologists, Biochemists, Chemists and Physicians
