Special Issue "Biomarkers and Nanosensors: New Approaches for Biology and Medicine"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 February 2012).
Interests: the nanostructured assembly and manipulation of matter to produce materials and devices for application in medicine and biotechnology
Interests: microfluidic and nanofluidic devices for circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and protein biomarker analysis
In the past decade, biomarker research has experienced phenomenal growth powered by novel molecular readout (nano) technology in genomics, proteomics and metabolomics. The biological markers of disease are now enabling many new and innovative applications in the field of medicine, molecular biology and biotechnology. This special issue will focus on convergence of biomarkers and nanotechnology based molecular readout systems and clinical applications.
