Synopsis

A comprehensive overview of smart and responsive surfaces in biotechnology and their applications A wave of recent advances in cell biology, biophysics, chemistry, and materials science has enabled the development of a new generation of smart biomaterials. Intelligent Surfaces in Biotechnology: Scientific and Engineering Concepts, Enabling Technologies, and Translation to Bio-Oriented Applications provides readers with a comprehensive overview of surface modifications and their applications, including coverage of the physico-chemical properties, characterization methods, smart coating technologies, and demonstration of performance in vitro and in vivo. The first part of the book covers applications in the fields of biosensing and biodiagnostics, while the second part focuses more on coatings for medical devices, drug delivery, and tailored cell-surface interactions. The book explores intelligent surface applications such as tissue engineering, drug targeting and delivery, wound healing and anti-infection strategies, biosensors, nanopatterning, and bioinspired design of novel responsive materials and multifunctional surfaces.

Designed to aid scientists and engineers in understanding the rapidly developing field of biofunctional surfaces, Intelligent Surfaces in Biotechnology is an edited volume with each chapter written by a respected expert and featuring examples taken from the most state-of-the-art developments in the discipline. Cover Image: Design concept for a diagnostic microfluidic system based on responsive polymer- and antibody-conjugated nanobeads (see Chapter 2 of this book, Figure 2.5; reproduced by permission from the Royal Society of Chemistry).

H. Michelle Grandin currently works as a scientific writer and consultant in the field of tissue regeneration and implant surfaces for dental applications. Previously, she worked as a senior research scientist in the biointerface group of Marcus Textor at ETH Zurich. There, she developed a waveguide fluorescence microscope for the study of bio-interactions in the near-field as well as leading a group in the development of 3D single cellular microwell arrays for application in stem cell and cancer research. Marcus Textor is a Professor Emeritus at ETH Zurich, Department of Materials. He was head of a research group dedicated to surfaces and interfaces in bio-related fields of material science. His research interests cover both fundamental aspects of the behavior of materials in contact with biological milieus and the design and development of surfaces that elicit biospecific responses.
