From the Editors-
Handbook of “Integrated Biomaterials for Biomedical technology” brings all aspects of the biomaterials including metals, ceramics, polymers and their composites, at the macro/micro/nano/molecular length scales, with wide range of biomedical applications such as medical implants and devices, stem cell and tissue engineering, protein and drug delivery, and regenerative medicine. The last three decades has seen extraordinary advances in the generation of new materials based on both fundamental elements and composites, driven by advances in synthetic chemistry and often drawing inspiration from nature. The concept of an intelligent material envisions additional functionality built into to the molecular structure, such that a desirable response occurs under defined conditions. The last decade has seen the emergence of particular material properties engineered by exploiting the extraordinary behavior of nanostructures.
As insured editors of Integrated Biomaterials, we are committed to publish this handbook continuously with covering all theoretical and experimental aspects of biomaterials into five volumes. The first volume of the handbook “Integrated Biomaterials: Materials in Medicine” edition is unique because it provides all important aspects dealing with the basic science involved in Materials in Medicine specially structure and properties, techniques and technological innovations in material processing and characterizations, and applications of biomaterials in various biomedical fields. The first volume consists of 12 chapters written by the experts of biomaterials field around the world. Chapter 1 deals with the different types of nanobiomaterials in the form of 1, 2 and 3 dimensions and their biomedical applications. Chapter 2 discusses about the various techniques to generate porous biomaterials for tissue engineering applications. Chapter 3 focuses on calcium phosphate-based biomaterials intended for mineralized tissue regenerative applications. Chapter 4 describes nanocrystalline form of calcium phosphates and their application towards hard tissue engineering. Chapter 5 deals with design and fabrication of SiO2 nanoparticles for biomedical applications. Chapter 6 discusses about a new kind of titanium alloy implant for biomedical applications. Chapter 7 deals with injectable growth factor system based on bone morphogenetic proteins suitable for bone tissue engineering application. Chapter 8 describes impedance sensing of biological processes in mammalian cells. Chapter 9 focuses on hydrogels-based implantable glucose sensors. Chapter 10 deals with molecular design of multifunctional polymers for gene transfection. Chapter 11 complies the different types of hydrogels and their potential biomedical applications. Finally, Chapter 12 deals with hybrid biomaterials with high mechanical and biological properties for use in medical applications. The handbook is intended for a wide audience including students, researchers, professors, and industrial experts working in the field of biomaterials, materials science and engineering, nanoscience and nanotechnology, bioengineering, biomedical sciences, etc.
