Bioelectronic Nose-1

Tai Hyun Park Editor 2014 Integration of Biotechnology and Nanotechnology We have five senses: vision, hearing, touch, smell, and taste. Although some other senses including balance, pain, itch, and temperature senses have been reported, the five senses remain major classical senses. Among these five senses, three of them: vision, hearing, and touch, recognize physical stimuli, and the other […]

Nanomaterials and Nanosystems for Biomedical Applications-1

Edited by M. Reza Mozafari 2007 Nanotechnology has been defined as the scientific area, which deals with sizes and tolerances of 0.1 to 100 nm (Albert Franks). This is a working definition that refers to the properties of materials, in the above size range. More specifically, nanotechnology can produce, characterize and study devises and systems by controlling shape and […]

Nanocarrier Technologies: Frontiers of Nanotherapy

Nanocarrier Technologies-1

Edited by M. Reza Mozafari 2006 Nanotherapy in a broad sense is the application of nano-scale technologies, including  nano-encapsulation (or nanocarrier) systems, to increase life standards of humans and animals. Advances in nanotherapy and nanopharmaceutical technology have made it possible to target human and  animal diseases precisely at their source whilst minimising side effects.
