Nanobiological Materials

Nanoscale materials are smaller than many cellular components of the body. As such, there is massive potential to use nanomaterials for therapeutic applications, including drug delivery, tissue engineering, and medical diagnosis. Chapter 9 is dedicated to the use of nanoscale materials in the field of medical treatment and diagnosis. Topics included are biocompatible nanomaterials, targeted drug delivery, medical imaging techniques, and sensors for diagnosis.
