    The book, Nanosensors for Futuristic Smart and Intelligent Healthcare Systems, presents a treatise on nanosensors technology including wearables, implantable devices and wireless tools. The recent pandemic (COVID-19) has changed the behaviour of people towards diagnosis of infectious diseases and monitoring remote patient health status in real-time. The main focus of this book is the basic concepts of nanomaterials and sensing paradigms for medical devices based on nanosensor technology. The book will be valuable to researchers, engineers and scientists interested in the field of healthcare for monitoring health status in real-time.

    Suresh Kaushik, PhD in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology is associated with Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi, India, since 1985. His current research interest combines multidisciplinary approaches in the fields of nanobiotechnology, applied microbiology, soil biochemistry, and environmental science. Other research interests include food quality and food safety issues; nanotechnology and genomics in food science and agriculture; nanomaterials and nanosensors in agriculture, smart intelligent nanofertilizers; nanosensors for smart healthcare system; use of artificial intelligence in agriculture; soil nutrients, trace and heavy metals research, elemental speciation research using High Performance Liquid Chromatography-Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrometry (HPLC-ICP-MS). He has more than thirty publications to his credit including research papers, review articles, book chapters and edited books. He has experienced in genetic engineering of crops particularly Bt-transgenic or genetically modified crops. He is associate in various research projects in the field of nanotechnology and biotechnology. He has guided several MSc and PhD students in the subject of Biotechnology. He served as a reviewer of national and international journals and is a member of several advisory and organizing committees of national and international conferences and workshops. He has delivered many invited lectures in different national and international conferences and workshops. Currently, he works as Chief Technology Officer (Research) at Division of Chemistry, Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi, India.

    Vijay Soni, PhD is associated with Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, since 2016 and has total 10 years of research experience. During his Ph.D. (2012 to 2016) he worked on Mycobacterium tuberculosis cell wall protein (GlmU) and characterized it as a best therapeutic target to cure tuberculosis (TB). He elucidated the detailed crystal structure and biochemistry of the protein GlmU and also determined the essentiality of the gene for bacterial survival at different stages of growth and during TB infection. These findings led him to develop a new therapeutic molecule – Oxazolidine 33 (Oxa33) which specifically targets the protein (GlmU) and is capable of killing the TB bacteria. The work was recognized by National Academy of Science India for the “NASI-Young Scientist Platinum Jubilee Award” in 2017; the “Inspiring Science Award 2017” by TNQ-Cell Press; “BioAsia Innovation award” 2016 by Global BioBusiness Forum; and “Global Health Award” by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Currently, he is working in the field of metabolomics to understand the immunological insults and adaptations happening during TB infection. He is working to identify various metabolic signatures and important mechanisms to enhance the therapeutic potential of anti-TB drugs and therapies. He is good at scientific idea identification, metabolomics data analysis, database preparation, identifying new drug targets with the help of metabolomics and genetic engineering etc.
