As the impact of nanotechnology continues to grow, it is important for the modern biomedical engineer to have a deeply rooted understanding of bionanotechnologies. Featuring chapters drawn from the third edition of the best-selling Handbook of Biomedical Engineering as well as new contributions not found in the Handbook, Bionanotechnology takes a broad survey of the current research and activities that are shaping this burgeoning field. Covering both technical and non-technical areas, the book discusses the role of nanotechnology in novel medical devices, bioanalytical technologies, and nano-biomaterials as well as intellectual property issues that are unique to nanotechnologies.
