"Nanomaterials and Nanosystems for Biomedical Applications" brings together under a single cover various aspects of functional bioengineered materials and nanostructured biomaterials including commonly used implants and sustained release nanodevices. The book includes expert reviews on the advances and current problems associated with the implants and nanodevices along with their applications in medicine, pharmaceutics, cancer therapy, gene transfer and drug delivery. The editor, M. R. Mozafari (PhD), has been working in the field of nanobiotechnology for the past 14 years and has produced more than 60 publications. The book also describes the key research parameters pertaining to major technologies employed in the field. To put it in perspective, all important aspects dealing with the chemistry, physics, biology and engineering of nanostructured biomaterials and their applications in nanobiotechnology are covered.
