The future of medicine is nano-sized

As the World’s eyes focus on London for the sporting events, here in the RSC book’s office we’re focussing on health and wellbeing.  Therefore, our book of the month for August focuses on the contributions of materials science to healthcare.

Biological Interactions with Surface Charge in Biomaterials highlights the fascinating area of nanomedicine, an area that has long since been heralded as the future of healthcare in science fiction films and television shows.

The book is published in the RSC Nanoscience & Nanotechnology series and is written and edited by experts in the field, the book discusses the fundamental principles and scientific background behind the body’s response to biomaterials, and highlights the considerations that must be taken into account when developing such materials, such as plaque formation, encrustation and charge distribution.

Covering the technology and applications of biomaterial devices in detail, these concepts are supported by case studies, clearly indicating the real life implications of this newly emerging research field.

Find out how close the future really is here.
