The enormous advances in nanomedicine and precision medicine in the past two decades has necessitated a growing need for an authoritative and comprehensive reference source that can be relied upon by biomedical researchers, clinicians, pharmaceutical scientists, regulators, and lawyers alike. This stand‐alone, full-color book provides a broad survey of various interconnected topics, all accomplished in a user‐friendly format. Each chapter contains key words, tables and figures in color, future projections, and an extensive list of references. It is intended to be a standalone reference volume that broadly surveys and highlights innovative technologies and advances pertaining to nanomedicine and precision medicine. In addition, it also addresses often-neglected yet key issues such as translational medicine, intellectual property law, FDA regulatory issues, nanomedicine nomenclature and artificial nanomachines—all accomplished in a user-friendly, broad yet interconnected format.
