By Mingjun Zhang, Ning Xi

This booklet bargains a primary and accomplished assessment of nanomedicine from a platforms engineering point of view, making it the 1st booklet within the box of quantitative nanomedicine in response to platforms concept. it's going to increase wisdom of nanoscale technological know-how and engineering through successfully utilising quantitative instruments for primary biomedical engineering and organic technology examine. The ebook starts off by means of introducing the concept that of nanomedicine, and gives uncomplicated mathematical modeling options that may be used to version nanoscale biomedical and organic platforms. It then demonstrates how this concept can be utilized to version and learn the imperative dogma of molecular biology, tumor progress, and the immune method. large functions of the assumption are additional illustrated by way of Bayesian networks, multiscale and multiparadigm modeling, and AFM engineering. This publication demonstrates how structures engineering, which has been very profitable in traditional engineering, might help with nanomedicine.
