Biomedical nanosensors have a wide range of applications in human, animal, and plant health for diagnostics and therapeutics. Assembled by Prof. Joseph Irudayaraj, this book is an important reference in the exciting, important, and rapidly evolving field of biomedical nanotechnology. The chapters are detailed and thorough, and rich with references. It is an interdisciplinary collection of contributions from experts with diverse backgrounds, and therefore a very interesting and educational read for students and faculty researchers in bionanotechnology.
Prof. Rashid Bashir - University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA
Biomedical nanosensors play a central role in the development of diagnostics and therapeutics for early detection and treatment of diseases. Bringing a nanoscale perspective to sensing is expected to allow interrogation of biological systems; detection of ultra-small concentration of biomolecules, ions, and molecular interactions; exploration of cellular mechanisms; and integration of nanosensors into many other devices, including implantable devices.
This book specifically addresses nanomaterials, constituting nanoparticles, nanowires, and nanotubes of inorganic as well as polymeric composition of nano- and micro-scale dimensions as sensing and therapeutic agents since these constitute a major direction in nanomedicine. The book also discusses selected technologies involving single-molecule and single-particle methods for tracking.
The book is Volume 3 of the Pan Stanford Series on Biomedical Nanotechnology that is headed by Vladimir Torchilin and Mansoor Amiji.
