The manipulation and control of cells and sub-cellular structures through magnetic nanoparticle-based actuation is a relatively new technique that has led to novel and exciting biomedical applications. Nanomagnetic actuation is being used in laboratory studies of stem cells to determine how these mechanical cues can be used to control stem cell differentiation for regenerative medicine applications. This book explores this rapidly expanding field. It will interest industry bioscientists and biomedical engineers as well as academics in cellular biomechanics, cell and tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine.
- Focuses on the fundamentals and applications of magnetic actuation
- Includes contributions by world-class researchers from several countries and is edited by a well-known researcher in this field
- Offers multidisciplinary coverage and applications
- Supplies extensive references at the end of each chapter
