Features

  • Follows nanoparticles from the site of injection to the site of action
  • Covers biological transport and barriers throughout the body
  • Highlights research tools for tracking nanoparticles

Summary

This book describes barriers from the macro to the nanoscale, starting with endothelial and mucosal barriers, and ending with cellular organelles. Experimental approaches to track nanoparticles in vitro and in vivo are presented, as well as the ability to tailor-make nanoparticles for specific functions. Several model types of nanoparticles are presented, as well the impact of particle attributes on biological transport.
