This book highlights the wide applications of nanomaterials in healthcare and environmental remediation. Presenting nano-based materials that positively influence the growth and proliferation of cells present in soft and hard tissue and are used for the regeneration bone tissue and/or suppression of cancer cells, it also discusses the natural products that can be incorporated in nanofibers for the treatment of cancer.Further, it describes the use of blending and functionalization to produce chitosan nanofibers for biomedical applications, and reviews the role of plasma-enhanced gold nanoparticles in diagnostics and therapeutics.
Lastly, the book also introduces various nanotechnology approaches for the removal of waste metabolites in drinking water, and explores the emerging applications of nanorobotics in medicine. Given its scope, this book is a valuable resource for scientists, clinicians, engineers and researchers aiming to gain a better understanding of the various applications of nanotechnology.
Dr. Faheem A. Sheikh is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Nanotechnology, University of Kashmir, India. Before this he served as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Biotechnology at the Central University of Kashmir, India (2015-2016); Brain Korea 21+ Research Professor at the Myongji University, South Korea (2014-2015); Assistant Professor at Nano-Bio Regenerative Medical Institute, Hallym University, South Korea (2002-2014); Post-Doc/Research fellow at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, Texas, United States of America (2010-2012) and Research Professor at Myongji University, South Korea (2010). His research mainly focuses on fabricating 3D nanomaterials used in tissue engineering and regeneration. He has considerable expertise in the fabrication of polymeric, ceramic and metal oxide nanofibers using electrospinning, as well as the production of porous scaffolds by solvent casting, salt-leaching, 3D printing, gas forming, sol-gel synthesis, phase separation, freeze-drying, particulate leaching and self-assembly for hard and soft tissue engineering. He has more than 16 years of research experience in nanotechnology with a particular focus on new material fabrication, developing new techniques, tissue engineering and drug delivery. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles, contributed to 10 conferences, written 7 book chapters, and delivered 4 invited talks.
