From the Editors-

The biomedical materials with the most promising outlook have the ability to precisely adjust the biological phenomenon in a controlled manner. Engineering of advanced biomaterials has found striking applications in use for biomedicals and diagnostic devices, such as cell separation, stem-cell, drug delivery, hyperthermia, automated DNA extraction, gene targeting, resonance imaging, biosensors, tissue engineering and organ regeneration.  The world market for bio medicals and diagnostic devices is expanding rapidly and is currently valued over US$1000 trillion. Likewise, academic research has kept pace with the market demand with over 50,000 papers being published in the field last year. While the field of diagnostic devices has achieved considerable success, commercial returns are dominated by glucose sensing, despite the myriad of other possibilities for novel and useful analytical devices.

This book aims to provide an up-to-date overview to the fascinating field of biomedical materials and devices. In general description, this large and fairly comprehensive volume includes twenty one chapters divided into four main areas: biomedical materials, diagnostic devices, drug delivery & therapeutics and tissue engineering & organ regeneration. It covers the latest research and developments in biomedical materials and medical devices: fabrications, performance and uses.

The chapters seek to address the progress in the succeeding strategy of biomedical materials and devices such as collagen, crystalline calcium orthophosphates, amphiphilic polymers, polycaprolactone, biomimetic assembly, bio-nanocomposite matrices, bio- silica, theranostic nanobiomaterials, intelligent drug delivery systems, elastomeric nanobiomaterials, electrospun nano-matrix, metal nanoparticles and variety of biosensors. The book is written for a large 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 text book for both undergraduate and graduate students, but also as a review and reference book for researchers in the materials science, bioengineering, pharmacy, biotechnology and nanotechnology.
