The Field of Nanotechnology is Undergoing Rapid Developments on Many Fronts - Read More inside New Book ‘Biomedical Applications of Nanotechnology’

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on October 9th, 2007

This book provides a comprehensive survey of nanotechnology that reviews recent advances in nanotechnology-based drug and gene delivery systems and imaging approaches, and includes their biomedical significance, future prospects, and economic impact on pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries. Authors from different disciplines representing pharmaceutical sciences, biology, physics, engineering, medicine, and others investigating nanotechnology for various biomedical applications contributed book chapters.

An overview of nanotechnology and its potential

The field of nanotechnology is undergoing rapid developments on many fronts. This reference provides a comprehensive review of various nanotechnologies with a view to their biomedical applications. With chapters contributed by distinguished scientists from diverse disciplines, Biomedical Applications of Nanotechnology:

- Reviews recent advances in the designing of various nanotechnologies based on nucleic acids, polymers, biomaterials, and metals

- Discusses biomedical nanotechnology in areas such as drug and gene delivery

- Covers advanced aspects of imaging and diagnostics

Includes a chapter on the issue of nanotoxicology

Complete with figures and tables, this is a practical, hands-on reference book for researchers in pharmaceutical and biotech industries, biomedical engineers, pharmaceutical scientists, pharmacologists, and materials scientists as well as for the policymakers who need to understand the potential of nanotechnology. It is also an excellent resource book for graduate-level students in pharmaceutical sciences, biomedical engineering, and other fields in which nanotechnology is playing an increasingly important role.

About the author(s):

Vinod Labhasetwar, PHD, is a Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lerner Research Institute at the Cleveland Clinic, where he leads the Cancer NanoMedicine Program, a collaborative effort jointly sponsored by the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the clinic's Taussig Cancer Center. Dr. Labhasetwar's research interest is in translational nanomedicine. His laboratory investigates various nanosystems for drug/gene delivery in cancer therapy, stroke, cardiovascular conditions, and other age-related disorders. In addition, his group investigates magnetic nanoparticles for imaging applications. Dr. Labhasetwar has published over one hundred peer-reviewed articles and book chapters. He has several U.S. and foreign patents on drug delivery.
