This is the fourth book of a book series on Frontiers in Nano biomedical Research under the joint editorship of Martin L. Yarmush of Harvard Medical School and Donglu Shi, who is  associated with University of Cincinnati, 9789814616911-bio-inspiredUSA as well as he is a professor from the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Nano Science in the Tongji University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China.

This is an edited book comprising contributions from 23 scientists mostly from institutions, organizations in China, who are active in the frontier areas of research in biomedicine.  Ten chapters of this book provide different aspects of application of nanotechnology to medical field in areas like cancer diagnosis, imaging, bio-probes, drug delivery etc. In fact, several effective approaches have been developed in tumor therapy using nanotechnology but selective drug delivery into tumor has been a key challenge in cancer management. New trend is to develop Nano-systems for simultaneous diagnosis and therapy.

This book provides an up-to-date information in the field of Nano-biomedicine besides highlighting the basic concepts and recent developments in the field of nanotechnology. This book covers a broad spectrum of nanomaterials processing, structural characteristics, and related properties. Important and difficult issues are presented in a simplified manner which helps students from academia to understand them without much difficulty. In fact, the book assumes no technical background for its readers to understand the material presented in the book. Several new concepts in nanomaterials are also explained in light of current theories.

The book provides a reasonably wide coverage in practical biomedical applications. Not only are the cutting-edge technologies in modern medicine introduced, but also unique materials applications in many clinical areas. The book is addressed to researchers in chemistry, material science, physics, engineering, biology and medicine.
