Nanomaterials for Theranostics and Tissue Engineering: Techniques, Trends and Applications provides information on the major methodologies for the application of nanomaterials in the medical field. In recent years, nanotechnology for medicine, commonly known as bionanotechnology, or nanomedicine, has revolutionized various types of medical treatment. This book is intended for practicing engineers and scientists, and includes detailed, readily applicable protocols. It focuses on 4 major themes, including the synthesis of nanosystems for controlled drug delivery, nanotechnology-enhanced sensing systems, the application of nanotechnologies to the synthesis of novel biomaterials, and safety issues related to the application of medicinal nanotechnology.
