Overview

Biomedical Materials and Diagnostics Devices provides an up-to-date overview of the fascinating and emerging field of biomedical materials and devices, fabrication, performance, and uses

The biomedical materials with the most promising potential combine biocompatibility with the ability to adjust precisely the biological phenomena in a controlled manner. The world market for biomedical and diagnostic devices is expanding rapidly and the pace of academic research resulted in about 50,000 published papers in recent years. It is timely, therefore, to assemble a volume on this important subject.

The chapters in the book seek to address progress in successful design strategies for biomedical materials and devices such as the use of collagen, crystalline calcium orthophosphates, amphiphilic polymers, polycaprolactone, biomimetic assembly, bio-nanocomposite matrices, bio-silica, theranostic nanobiomaterials, intelligent drug delivery systems, elastomeric nanobiomaterials, electrospun nano-matrices, metal nanoparticles, and a variety of biosensors.

This large and comprehensive volume includes twenty chapters authored by some of the leading researchers in the field, and is divided into four main areas: biomedical materials; diagnostic devices; drug delivery and therapeutics; and tissue engineering and organ regeneration.

Audience
This book is intended to be suitable for a wide readership including university students and researchers from diverse backgrounds such as chemistry, materials science, physics, pharmacy, biological science and bio-medical engineering. It can be used not only as a textbook for both undergraduate and graduate students, but also as a review and reference book for researchers in materials science, bioengineering, pharmacy, biotechnology and nanotechnology.
