Biomimetic Nanoengineered Materials for Advanced Drug Delivery is an indispensable guide for new developments in biomimetic nanoengineering for advanced drug delivery applications. Focusing on the fundamentals of a new type of nanocarriers for drug delivery in the most recent miRNA therapeutics, the book provides readers with detailed knowledge from the basics, to the most recent innovations. Early chapters of the book discuss a range of drug delivery techniques, including nanofibers, biomimetic polymers, 3D bioprinting, nanotechnology and radiofrequency sensitive nanocarriers. Later chapters explore miRNA therapeutics, magnetic nanoparticles, nanogel-based and ROS-mediated drug delivery systems.
The book is a vital reference for biomaterials and nanomedicine researchers and clinicians with an interest in advanced drug delivery.
