Micro and Nanotechnologies for Biotechnology

Edited by Stefan G. Stanciu

Polytechnic University of Bucharest

Countless healthcare and biomedical solutions with high impact in terms of timely diagnostics, therapeutic success, patient comfort or financial sustainability of healthcare systems rely on micro- and nanotechnologies. Thus, it is not at all exaggerate to claim that such technologies play in current days a tremendous role with respect to improving the quality of our life, health and well-being, which are the main priorities of modern science. This volume illustrates these statements, addressing highly significant scientific subjects from diverse areas of micro- and nanotechnologies for biotechnology. Authoritative voices in their fields present in this volume their work, or review recent trends, concepts and applications, in a manner that is accessible to a broad readership audience from both within and outside their specialist area.
