Soft materials with nanometer scale aspects have been heavily used in biomedical science. Instead of providing a broad introduction of soft materials and their biomedical applications, this book focuses on the preparation of molecular assemblies of biotechnologically relevant biomimetic systems with an emphasis on medical applications.

  • Self-Assembling Supramolecular Nanostructures for Drug Delivery (Michael Porter, Ran Lin, Maya Monroe and Honggang Cui)
  • Bioactive Supramolecular Assembly of Peptide Amphiphiles to Control Cellular Fate (M T Jeena, Huyeon Choi and Ja-Hyoung Ryu)
  • Supramolecular Gel Electrophoresis of Protein (Masamichi Yamanaka)
  • Self-assembly of Polymer-grafted Inorganic Nanoparticles into Functional Hybrid Materials (Chenglin Yi and Zhihong Nie)
  • Surface Coated NIR Light-Responsive Nanostructures for Imaging and Therapeutic Applications (Yanmei Yang and Bengang Xing)
  • Surface Functionalization through Polymer Segregation (Tatsuo Maruyama)
  • Nucleic Acid Hairpins: A Robust and Powerful Motif for Molecular Devices (Sudhanshu Garg, Hieu Bui, Abeer Eshra, Shalin Shah and John Reif)
