Biomedical nanosensors

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


Biomedical nanosensors play a central role in the development of diagnostics and therapeutics for early detection and treatment of diseases. Bringing a nanoscale perspective to sensing is expected to allow interrogation of biological systems; detection of ultra-small concentration of biomolecules, ions, and molecular interactions; exploration of cellular mechanisms; and integration of nanosensors into many other devices, including implantable devices. This book specifically addresses nanomaterials, constituting nanoparticles, nanowires, and nanotubes of inorganic as well as polymeric composition of nano- and micro-scale dimensions as sensing and therapeutic agents since these constitute a major direction in nanomedicine. The book also discusses selected technologies involving single-molecule and single-particle methods for tracking.
