Abstract

This book covers a wide range of biomaterials from polymers and ceramics to metals, composites, nanomaterials, and biosensor materials for various biomedical applications. I strongly recommend this book for those who have a basic knowledge in biomaterials who want to expand their knowledge and to know more about biomaterials’ applications. Having said that, the book is so well-designed that is understandable by those with no prior knowledge in biomaterials such as students and young researchers or experienced researchers in other fields. For instance, at the beginning of each chapter, there is an introduction section with enough background information, which prepares the readers for the next sections. More specifically, I’m quite impressed with the application sections providing the readers with real-world health problems and how a specific biomaterial or a medical device, which is comprised of several biomaterials, can address those problems. This book can definitely help bridging the gap between science and technology in the biomedical field. I would like to congratulate the editors and the authors of this book for the excellent work and look forward to their next contribution to the field.
