One Line Description
This work provides a comprehensive description of some of the emerging opportunities in bioelectronics facilitated by the development of novel materials.

Scientists, researchers, scholars, engineers and technologists in biosensors, bioelectronics and diagnostics in biochemistry, biophysics, materials science, biomedical engineering, and biotechnology. The book can also be used as a textbook in PhD, master and undergraduate level courses on bioelectronics, therapeutics, biosensors, and translational biodevices, personalized medicine and biomedical applications in medical technology.

In this book, a selection of leading scientists and technology experts describe advances in nanoscale electronics and how they mesh with the bioengineering community to deliver specific applications. The contributors chronicle a wide span of opportunities, possibilities and challenges for this diverse and interdisciplinary field.

The principal themes of this cross-disciplinary volume on advanced bioelectronic materials are:
• Miniaturization of bioelectronics
• Smart biosensing
• Molecular-electronic interfaces
• Stimuli-responsive (mechanical, electrical, chemical and thermal) materials
• Real-time monitoring of essential parameters to assess the state of biomolecules.

The successful translation of this multidisciplinary research to commercial reality needs a deep understanding at a very early stage of the interface between electronics and biology. Consequently, the book showcases a range of sectors and disciplines who do not necessarily speak with the same ‘language,’ but who are willing to commit to a collaborative effort in areas such as this, where interdisciplinary contributions are key for success.
