Book Description

Biomedical Applications of Magnetic Particles discusses fundamental magnetic nanoparticle physics and chemistry and explores important biomedical applications and future challenges.

The first section presents the fundamentals of the field by explaining the theory of magnetism, describing techniques to synthesize magnetic particles, detailing methods to characterize magnetic particles, and quantitatively describing the applied magnetic forces, torques, and the resultant particle motions. The second section describes the wide range of biomedical applications, including chemical sensors, cellular actuators, drug delivery, magnetic hyperthermia, magnetic resonance imaging contrast enhancement, and toxicity.

Additional key features include:

  • Covers both introduction to physics and characterization of magnetic nanoparticles and the state of the art in biomedical applications
  • Authoritative reference for scientists and engineers for all new or old to the field
  • Describes how the size of magnetic nanoparticles affects their magnetic properties, colloidal properties, and biological properties.

Written by a team of internationally respected experts, this book provides an up-to-date authoritative reference for scientists and engineers.

Biography

Jeffrey N. Anker is a Wallace R. Roy Distinguished Professor of Chemistry

and BioEngineering at Clemson University. He earned his BS degree in

applied physics at Yale University in 1998. He earned his doctorate at The

University of Michigan in 2005, working for Professor Raoul Kopelman

to develop magnetically modulated optical nanoprobes (MagMOONs) to

measure chemical concentrations and mechanical properties of solutions. For

this work, he was awarded a grand prize at the 2002 National Inventor’s

Hall of Fame Collegiate Inventor’s Competition. From 2005 to 2008,

Dr. Anker worked as an NIH National Science Research Award (NSRA)

postdoctoral research fellow at Northwestern University under the guidance of Professor

Richard Van Duyne. His postdoctoral research focused on developing real-time high-resolution

plasmonic nanosensors. He joined the Clemson Chemistry Department in August 2008. Current

research focuses on imaging and spectroscopy using magnetic, plasmonic, x-ray excited microand

nanosensors, implantable sensors, orthopedic devices, and medical imaging. Along with

Thompson Mefford, he founded the Frontiers in BioMagnetic Particles Meeting Series. Awards

include: NSF CAREER award (2013); Clemson Faculty Collaboration Award (2014); Clemson

University School of Health Research (CUSHR), and Greenville Health System Embedded

Faculty Fellow (2018); University Research, Scholarship, and Artistic Achievement Award

(USRAAA) (2018); and senior member of the National Academy of Inventors (2019).

 

O. Thompson Mefford is an Associate Professor in the Department of

Materials Science Engineering where he holds a David and Mary Ann Bishop

Dean’s Professorship, along with an additional appointment in the Department

of Bioengineering at Clemson University. He earned his BS degree

in Polymer and Textile Chemistry at Clemson in 2003 and a PhD in

Macromolecular Science and Engineering from Virginia Tech in 2007,

where he worked on the development of treatments for retinal detachment

using hydrophobic ferrofluids. Before returning back to Clemson, Dr. Mefford

developed methods for the fabrication and functionalization of microfluidic

devices as a Post-doctoral Researcher for The Ohio State University Department of Chemistry.

Dr. Mefford joined the faculty of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Clemson in

the Fall of 2008. His research focuses on developing stable, polymer-iron oxide nanoparticle

complexes and composites for biomedical applications. These applications include developing

materials for magnetically modulated energy delivery, MRI contrast agents, and drug delivery

systems. He currently organizes the Frontiers in Magnetic Particles Conference (www.

magneticnanoparticle.com). In his free time, Dr. Mefford is found running, cycling, sailing,

backpacking, and home brewing.

Reviews

"When I opened this book and saw the list of authors I instantly knew that it was going to become the first book I’d recommend to every person starting to work in this field.

The experience Thompson Mefford and Jeffrey Anker have organizing the Frontiers in Magnetic Nanoparticles Conference series is clearly reflected in this book. They have made the perfect selection of leading experts to describe all of the most recent advances in each biomedical application, but at the same time have made an impressive effort to compile the state of the art in characterization techniques used to understand the fundamental properties of the magnetic nanoparticles.

Altogether, this makes the book both accessible to newcomers to the field of magnetic nanoparticles as well as highly recommended for professionals who are aiming for deeper fundamental insights."

"Biomedical Applications of Magnetic Particles marks a moment in time when seemingly impossible connections are being made, at the nanoscale, between inorganic matter and organic forms - from proteins to tissues - for the benefit of the health of us all. It is an exemplary combination of explanation and inspiration. It’s first third comprises a review of the underpinning science, written in an easily understood style. The remainder comprises an extremely useful snapshot of state-of-the-art innovation in this rapidly expanding field, based on wide-ranging and authoritative contributions from world-leading authors. Together, it makes for an informative and compelling text."
