That man–made nanomaterials are on a comparable size scale with natural biological materials such as antibodies and proteins greatly facilitates their actual use, and the understanding of biology and medicine with the help of nanotechnology will enable the production of nanoscale biomimetic materials. Manifold new uses derive from up to now inaccessible physical characteristics and novel properties that come with nano size, and their exploitation for applications ranges from drug delivery to biosensors, and opens an immense new field of nanoscale life sciences.

This book not only covers scientific aspects of nanofabrication for biomedical research, but also the implications for the industry, society and education. It provides a comprehensive perspective of ongoing research, and readers from materials science, engineering, chemistry, biology and medical backgrounds will find detailed accounts of the design and synthesis of nanomaterials as well as the tools and techniques involved in their characterization and production for applications in biology and medicine.
