    Editorial Reviews

    "This is a marvelous collection of reviews that is sure to excite clinicians, scientists, and engineers about the potential of nanotechnology in biology and medicine. The chapters are each thorough enough and sufficiently referenced that they can serve as outlines for entire courses. This is the book I will use to introduce "nanomedicine" to our students, residents, and faculty."
    —Mark Stewart, MD, PhD, State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, USA

    "This book is exciting and suitable for research overview and for teaching at the graduate level. I personally would use this book to get all my graduate students oriented in the field of clinical nanomedicine to get a sense of what the end goal of basic research is – to provide solutions for effective treatment of patients or prevention of disease."
