Nanogels for Biomedical Applications Editors: Arti Vashist, Ajeet K Kaushik, Sharif Ahmad, Madhavan Nair

About this book

Nanogel-based systems have gained tremendous attention due to their diverse range of applications in tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, biosensors, orthopaedics, wound healing and drug delivery. Nanogels for Biomedical Applications provides a comprehensive overview of nanogels and their use in nanomedicine.

The book starts with the synthesis, methods and characterization techniques for nanogel-based smart materials followed by individual chapters demonstrating the different uses of the materials. Applications covered include anticancer therapy, tuberculosis diagnosis and treatment, tissue engineering, gene delivery and targeted drug delivery.

The book will appeal to biologists, chemists, and nanotechnologists interested in translation research for personalized nanomedicine for health care.
