The subject of this book is interdisciplinary, involving biology, medicine, nanoelectronics and the latest optics and electronics technologies. Chapters two and three are must-reads: Chapter two is dedicated to fabrication techniques for tissue engineering, while chapter three covers nanoscale interactions between cells and nanomaterials.

The book is written in a clear manner by scientists working in the field. The pages are beautifully illustrated and each chapter concludes with plenty of references. I would recommend this book to anyone working in nanotechnology, advanced optics issues, and especially to people working in life sciences.
