Thermodynamics and Biophysics of Biomedical Nanosystems Applications and Practical Considerations
  • Highlights the recent advances of thermodynamics and biophysics in drug delivery nanosystems and in biomedical nanodevices

  • Provides an in depth knowledge of bio-inspired nanotechnological systems for pharmaceutical applications

  • Features on new aspects of biophysics and thermodynamics as important elements for evaluating biomedical nanosystems

This book highlights the recent advances of thermodynamics and biophysics in drug delivery nanosystems and in biomedical nanodevices. The up-to-date book provides an in-depth knowledge of bio-inspired nanotechnological systems for pharmaceutical applications.

Biophysics and thermodynamics, supported by mathematics, are the locomotive by which the drug transportation and the targeting processes will be achieved under the light of the modern pharmacotherapy. They are considered as scientific tools that promote the understanding of physicochemical and thermotropic functionality and behavior of artificial cell membranes and structures like nanoparticulate systems. Therefore, this book focusses on new aspects of biophysics and thermodynamics as important elements for evaluating biomedical nanosystems, and it correlates their physicochemical, biophysical and thermodynamical behaviour with those of a living organism.

In 2018, Prof. Demetzos was honored with an award by the Order of Sciences of the Academy of Athens for his scientific contribution in Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology.
