Description

Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications: Fundamental Concepts, Biological Interactions and Clinical Applications brings into one place information on the design and biomedical applications of different classes of nanoparticles. While aspects are dealt with in individual journal articles, there is not one source that covers this area comprehensively. This book fills this gap in the literature.

Key Features

  • Outlines an in-depth review of biomedical applications of a variety of nanoparticle classes
  • Discusses the major techniques for designing nanoparticles for use in biomedicine
  • Explores safety and regulatory aspects for the use of nanoparticles in biomedicine

Readership

Materials scientists, engineers and manufacturers in biomedicine and environmental engineering
