About this book


About the Series:

Fundamental Biomedical Technologies features titles in multidisciplinary, technology-driven areas, providing the foundations for breakthrough advances in medicine and biology. The term technology refers, in a vigorously unrestrictive sense, to a broad array of engineering disciplines, the sciences of computation and informatics, mathematical models exploiting and advancing methods of mathematical physics, and the development of novel, experimental discovery devices. Titles in this series are designed and selected to provide high-level visionary input for specialists, while presenting overviews of emerging fields for those in related areas. Volumes in this series aim to provide technologists with the material to gain competent entry into biomedical research and biomedical researchers to understand and embrace novel technological foundations and tools.

About the Series Editor:

Mauro Ferrari is a professor in the Brown Institute of Molecular Medicine, a professor of internal medicine in the division of cardiology, and the chairman of the department of biomedical engineering at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, Texas. He holds concurrent professor appointments at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center as professor of experimental therapeutics, and at Rice University in bioengineering. Dr. Ferrari is the current President of the Alliance for NanoHealth and he has spearheaded the development of the National Cancer Institute’s nanotechnology programs. Dr. Ferrari is also the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Springer’s archival journal Biomedical Microdevices. 

Nanobiotechnology of Biomimetic Membranes

Donald Martin, Editor

Nanobiotechnology of Biomimetic Membranes focuses on biomimetic membranes, one of the fundamental building blocks of nanobiotechnology. The application of nanotechnology principles and methodology to problems in biotechnology provides an exciting new discipline that will generate a revolution of novel applications, across many disciplines. This valuable new title offers an international perspective on the development of biotechnology applications.

Key topics:

  • The Significance of Biomimetic Membrane Nanobiotechnology to Biomedical Applications
  • Langmuir-Blodgett technique for Synthesis of Biomimetic Lipid Membranes
  • Liposome techniques for Synthesis of Biomimetic Lipid Membranes
  • Characterization and Analysis of Biomimetic Lipid Membranes
  • Biomimetic Membranes in Biosensor Applications

Nanobiotechnology of Biomimetic Membranes will serve as a useful resource on the fundamental science of membranes in their interactions with macromolecules, providing a research platform for producing novel nanobiotechnology applications.
