Emphasizing their emerging capabilities, this volume provides a
strong foundation for an understanding of how micro- and
nanotechnologies used in biomedical research have evolved from
concepts to working platforms. Volume editor Christopher Love has
assembled here a highly interdisciplinary group of authors with
backgrounds ranging from chemical engineering right up to materials
science to reflect how the intersection of ideas from biology with
engineering disciplines has spurred on innovations. In fact, a
number of the basic technologies described are reaching the market
to advance the discovery and development of biopharmaceuticals. The
first part of the book focuses on microsystems for single-cell
analysis, examining tools and techniques used to isolate cells from
a range of biological samples, while the second part is dedicated
to tiny technologies for modulating biological systems at the scale
of individual cells, tissues or whole organisms. New tools are
described which have a great potential for (pre)clinical
development of interventions in a range of illnesses, such as
cancer and neurological diseases. Besides describing the promising
applications, the authors also highlight the ongoing challenges and
opportunities in the field.
