Offering the latest information in magnetic nanoparticle (MNP) research, this book builds upon the success of the first volume and provides an updated and comprehensive review, from synthesis, characterization, and biofunctionalization to clinical applications of MNPs, including the diagnosis and treatment of cancers. The book captures some of emerging research area which was not available in the first volume. Good Manufacturing Practices and Commercialization of MNPs are also included. This volume, also written by some of the most qualified experts in the field, incorporates new developments in the literature, and continues to bridge the gaps between the different areas in this field.

About the Author/Editor

Professor Nguyen TK Thanh, FRSC, MInstP ( held a prestigious Royal Society University Research Fellowship (2005-2014). She was appointed a Full Professor in Nanomaterials in 2013 at Biophysics Group, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University College London, UK. She leads a very dynamic group conducting cutting edge interdisciplinary and innovative research on the design, and synthesis of magnetic and plasmonic nanomaterials for biomedical applications. A very strong feature of her research program is the development of new chemical methods and in collaboration with chemical engineers to produce the next generation of nanoparticles with very high magnetic moment, and novel hybrid and multifunctional nanostructures. Detailed mechanistic studies of their formation by sophisticated and advanced analysis of the nanostructure allows tuning of the physical properties at the nanoscale; these can subsequently be exploited for diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. The studies are conducted to provide insight for future material design approaches. It will also help to identify the critical process parameters that can be manipulated in order to obtain the suitable physical properties for the intended applications.

She was the sole editor of the book: "MAGNETIC NANOPARTICLES: FROM FABRICATION TO CLINICAL APPLICATIONS" published by CRC Press/Taylor and Francis: In 2016, she was a Guest Editor of The Royal Society Interface Focus on "Multifunctional nanostructures for diagnosis and therapy of diseases".

She has published over 80 peer reviewed journal articles and book chapters with over 4000 citations so far. She has been Visiting Professors at various Universities in France, Japan, China and Singapore. She has been an invited speaker at nearly 200 institutes and scientific meetings. She has a leadership role in professional communities by chairing and organising 30 high profile international conferences such as American Chemistry Society symposia in 2018, 2012, 2010; Royal Society of Chemistry UK Colloids Conferences in 2017, 2014, 2011; European Material Research Society Symposia in 2016, 2013; ICMAT Singapore in 2015, 2013; Faraday Discussions in 2014 and being a member of advisory boards in Europe, USA and Japan. She served in Joint Committee of the Royal Society of Chemistry Colloid & Interface Science Group and the Society of Chemical Industry Colloid & Surface Chemistry Group (2008-2017). She is an elected member of The Royal Society of Chemistry Faraday Division Council and currently serving in Awards Committeeand was a representative member of Joint Colloids Groups (2013-2016). She is a workgroup leader of EU COST Action TD1402 on Multifunctional Nanoparticles for Magnetic Hyperthermia and Indirect Radiation Therapy (RADIOMAG). She is a Co-chair of the 13th International Conference on the Scientific and Clinical Applications of Magnetic Carriers in June 2020, London, UK.
