Book Description

Nanomedicine has emerged as a novel field in medicine integrating nano-scale technologies with materials sciences, chemistry and biology. The medical application of nanotechnology has the potential to revolutionize diagnosis and therapy and bring this new field from a notion into reality while impacting the lives of millions around the world. This second edition compiles and details the latest cutting-edge research in science and medicine from the interdisciplinary standpoint who are currently revolutionizing drug delivery techniques through the development of nanomedicines. Edited by Dan Peer, a prominent bio-nanotechnologiest, this book will attract anyone involved materials sciences, chemistry, biology and medicine that would like to design applications in the medical field of nanotechnology towards cancer therapy, inflammation, viral infection, imaging and toxicity.
