This title is a comprehensive text that addresses key aspects of nanomedicine such as properties occurring at the nanoscale that have unique medical effects, great molecular knowledge of the human body and disease processes, and apparent clinical translation as opposed to narrow insufficient texts that address only a few topics and attempt to “rebrand” established drug delivery. It will clearly define the field which is needed due to the immaturity and broad nature of the field. The book is aligned with both the USA and European roadmaps for nanomedicine and will address initiatives taken in Asia that ensures timely and relevant content. In-depth chapters ensure each section is adequately covered. The nanopharmaceutical section focuses on novel drug delivery systems relevant to nanomedicine and the book has an extensive section on immune recognition at the nanoscale which has implications for in vivo applications of nanomedicines. ​
