Glycopolymer Code edited by C. Remzy Becer and Laura Hartmann Glycopolymer Code

Glycopolymers are important for cell signalling, recognition pathways, and their role in the immune system. They are gaining attention for new applications in tissue engineering and drug delivery. This book discusses the preparation, characterization and applications of glycopolymers providing a complete overview of the topic with examples from the latest research

With contributions from leading researchers in the field, the book is a unique source for graduates and academics new to the subject and already working in the area of glycopolymers.

New in the RSC Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Series

Microfluidics for Medical Applications edited by Albert van den Berg and Loes Segerink Microfluidics for Medical Applications

Lab-on-a-chip devices for point of care diagnostics have been present in clinics for several years now. Alongside their continual development, research is underway to bring the organs and tissue on-a-chip to the patient, amongst other medical applications of microfluidics.

This book provides the reader with a comprehensive review of the latest developments in the application of microfluidics to medicine. Written with students and practitioners in mind, and with contributions from the leaders in the field across the globe, this book provides a complete digest of the state-of-the-art in microfluidics medical devices and will provide a handy resource for any laboratory or clinic involved in the development or application of such devices.
