Nanomaterials have gained enormous interest for a wide range of applications, since their small size and scale allow them to behave and interact with fundamental chemical and biological processes differently than regular materials. By allowing active agents to be specifically delivered and efficiently absorbed, nanomaterials reduce side effects and have become an important aspect of bench to bedside medicine. As a result of advances in the analysis and manipulation of these materials, the field has seen a huge increase in attention from all directions of research – academia, industry, and government.
Therapeutic Nanomaterials meets the demands of this broad range of researchers, giving an introduction to fundamentals and advances with a focus on biomedical applications. The authors write from their perspective as leading researchers working with this class of nanomaterial to discuss provide information how to develop materials for medicine as well as the requirements for clinical use, covering novel strategies and methods for more efficient therapies using nanotechnology.
Addressesing the increasing demand for nanomedicine in a cutting-edge and multidisciplinary field, Therapeutic Nanomaterials discusses a host of key topics that can help readers understand the medical application and biocompatability of nanomaterials. Chapters include:
