Biomaterials Science -- Processing, Properties, and Applications: Ceramic Transactions, Volume 228

This book contains 18 papers from the Next Generation Biomaterials and Surface Properties of Biomaterials symposia held during the 2010 Materials Science and Technology (MS&T'10) meeting, October 17-21, 2010, Houston, Texas.

Nanobiotechnology of Biomimetic Membranes

Nanobiotechnology of Biomimetic Membranes describes the current state of research and development in biomimetic membranes for nanobiotechnology applications. The application areas in nanobiotechnology range from novel nanosensors, to novel methods for sorting and delivering bio-active moleculres, to novel drug-delivery systems. The success of these applications relies on a good understanding of the interaction and incorporation of macromoleculres in membranes and the fundamental properties of the membrane itself.

BioMEMS and Biomedical Nanotechnology

Volume 1 of the multi-volume reference, BioMEMS and Biomedical Nanotechnology, focuses on synthetic nanodevices and the synthesis of nanomaterials and the generation of nanoscale features. The nanomaterials include polymeric microspheres and nanostructures, carbon nanotubes, silicon, silicon dioxide, and iron oxide. There is also a chapter on the characterization of critical nanostructures for bio applications such as nanochannels and nanopores. The second part involves hybrid synthetic-biomolecular nanodevices that utilize the self assembly properties of both biomolecules and synthetic materials. There is a chapter discussing the structure-function relations between biomolecular (protein) and inorganic interfaces. The third part gives the theoretical underpinning of bio nanodevices covering computation methods, informatics, and mechanics. These fundamentals are critical in designing the next generation nanodevices and also understanding the interaction between nanodevices and biological systems to enable more efficient in vitro and in vivo bio applications.
