Nanoscale technologies are crucial for the characterization and fabrication of biomaterials that are useful in targeted drug delivery systems. New materials enable the delivery of therapeutic agents to specific tissues and cells in order to treat a range of diseases.

Bionanotechnology: Next-Generation Therapeutic Tools provides a quick overview of the use of nanomaterials in modern drug delivery and targeted drug therapy systems. The book starts with an overview of nanomaterial toxicity with subsequent chapters detailing their applications in nanomedicine. Concepts such as immunotherapy, cancer theranostics, molecular imaging, aptamers, and viral nanoparticles are highlighted in specific chapters. The simplified presentation along with scientific references makes this book ideal for pharmacology and biomedical engineering scholars and life science readers.

Audience: Pharmacology and biomedical engineering scholars and life science readers.
