"Increasingly, scientists are gaining control over matter at the nanometer scale. Spearheaded by physical scientists operating at the interfaces of physics and biology (such as the author herself), advances in nanoscience and technology are transforming how we think about life and treat human health. This is due to a convergence of size. To do medicine, one must understand and be able to reach the nanoscale environment of healthy cells in tissues and organs, as well as other nano-sized building blocks that constitute a living organism, such as proteins and DNA. The ground-breaking advances being made at the frontiers of nanoscience and -technology, specifically in the areas of biology and medicine, are the subject of this short, popular-level book. Chapter 1 describes how nanotechnology and quantitative methods in biology are progressively being deployed to embrace life in all its multiscale, hierarchical intricacy and multiplicity. Chapters 2 through 4 review how bioinspired and biomimetic nanostructures and nanomachines are being created and integrated into strategies aimed at solving specific medical problems. In particular, Chapter 2 summarizes how scientists are seeking to build artificial nanostructures using both biological molecules and the organizational principles of biology. Chapter 3 gives an account of how nanotechnology is being used to develop drug-delivery strategies that specifically target cancer cells and tumors to improve the efficacy of current cancer chemotherapies. Chapter 4 reviews the science of one of the most potentially transformative scientific fields: tissue engineering. In a concluding chapter (Chapter 5), Contera reviews how nanotechnology, biology, and medicine will continue fusing with other sciences and technologies - incorporating more mathematical and computational modelling, as well as AI and robotics. Nanoscale devices will be used to learn biology; and biology will be used to inspire increasingly sophisticated "transmaterial" devices that mimic some of the characteristics of biology and incorporate new features that are not available in the biological world. The effects on human health and longevity will be profound. In a more personal epilogue, Contera describes the crossroads at which we find ourselves. Accessing our own biology evokes a mixture of possibility and dread. However, Contera maintains that we can create a positive transmaterial world for the benefit of humankind, and she describes ways in which scientists are proactively engaging with the public, politicians, industry, and entrepreneurs, as well as the media and the arts, to communicate the power and risks of new advances and to influence the ways in which new technologies will affect our future"--

Your author decided to write this book about NanoTechnology after being reminded of the fantastic developments of Professor Richard P Feynman who was a professor at Caltech while your author was a physics student earning his BS there between 1947 and 1951. I started studying the pioneering research of Dr. Feynman after being reminded of his famous lecture titled: There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom. This discourse was presented at an American Physical Society meeting at Caltech on December 29, 1959. Feynman considered the possibility of direct manipulation of individual atoms as a more powerful form of synthetic chemistry than the methods used at the time. This became nanotechnology

Nanobiotechnology basically relies on the idea of producing products that can integrate into the organisms system whereby effectively carry out the function it was meant for. Nanobiotechnology has massive amount of potentials for advancing medical science thus improving health care practices around the world. Many novel nanoparticles and nanodevices are expected to be used, with an enormous positive impact on human health. While true clinical applications of nanotechnology are still practically inexistent, an important number of promising medical projects are in an advanced experimental stage. Achievement of nanotechnology in medicine and physiology means that mechanisms and devices are so technically designed that they can interact with sub-cellular (i.e. molecular) levels of the body with a high degree of specificity. Nano-bio composite materials are one of the key topics, including their characterization, and their use with bio-components to address larger systems. Further, the marvelous biological system capable of writing information on a small scale has inspired the conception of new nanocomposite materials. Nanobiotechnology: Concepts Applications And Perspectives covers scientific and technological advances in the fields of medicine and biology, with an emphasis in their interface with nanoscale sciences. The book also tries to summarize the most recent developments in the field of applied nanomaterials, in particular their application in biology and medicine, and discusses their commercialization prospects including cells-to-chip and chip-to-cells technologies to nanobiosensors, from nanodiagnostics to advanced characterization and imaging tools, from intelligent drug delivery to artificial tissues, and from functional nano-addressable surfaces to smart materials and nanofluidics.
