Nanotechnology in Medical Science

Nanotechnology is manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. The earliest, widespread description of nanotechnology referred to the particular technological goal of precisely manipulating atoms and molecules for fabrication of macro-scale products, also now referred to as molecular nanotechnology.One of the most widespread applications of nanotechnology in medical science is nanomedicine. Nanomedicine is the medical application of nanotechnology. Nanomedicine ranges from the medical applications Of nanomaterials and biological devices to nanoelectronic biosensors, and even possible future applications of molecular nanotechnology such as biological machines.


In the present book, fourteen typical literatures about nanotechnology in medical science published on international authoritative journals were selected to introduce the worldwide newest progress, which contains reviews or original researches on nanotechnology, nanomedicine, medical science, ect. We hope this book can demonstrate advances in the application of nanotechnology in medical science as well as give references to the researchers, students and other related people.
