Volume 3 of the multi-volume reference, BioMEMS and Biomedical Nanotechnology,  will be the first comprehensive treatment of the emerging area of therapeutic micro- and nanotechnology. Subjects covered include: cell-based therapeutics,  regenerative medicine - merging cells with micro- and nanosystems, and integrating MEMS with cells and tissues; Drug delivery - intravascular nanoparticles for drug targeting and nonvascular delivery (implantable, oral, inhalable); molecular surface engineering for the biological interface, biomolecule patterning and cell patterning.This volume is very well illustrated with many of the figures in color.
