Synopsis

Introductory Bioelectronics for Engineers and Physical Scientists by Ronald R. Pethig, Stewart Smith

Bioelectronics is a rich field of research involving the application of electronics engineering principles to biology, medicine, and the health sciences. With its interdisciplinary nature, bioelectronics spans state-of-the-art research at the interface between the life sciences, engineering and physical sciences. Introductory Bioelectronics offers a concise overview of the field and teaches the fundamentals of biochemical, biophysical, electrical, and physiological concepts relevant to bioelectronics. It is the first book to bring together these various topics, and to explain the basic theory and practical applications at an introductory level. The authors describe and contextualise the science by examining recent research and commercial applications. They also cover the design methods and forms of instrumentation that are required in the application of bioelectronics technology. The result is a unique book with the following key features: * an interdisciplinary approach, which develops theory through practical examples and clinical applications, and delivers the necessary biological knowledge from an electronic engineer s perspective * a problem section in each chapter that readers can use for self-assessment, with model answers given at the end of the book along with references to key scientific publications * discussions of new developments in the bioelectronics and biosensors fields, such as microfluidic devices and nanotechnology Supplying the tools to succeed, this text is the best resource for engineering and physical sciences students in bioelectronics, biomedical engineering and micro/nano-engineering. Not only that, it is also a resource for researchers without formal training in biology, who are entering PhD programmes or working on industrial projects in these areas.

About the Author

Professor Ronald Pethig, Bioelectronics, School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh He has PhD degrees in electrical engineering and physical chemistry, and a D.Sc degree for work in the field of biomolecular electronics. He is author of one book ( Dielectric and Electronic Properties of Biological Materials, Wiley) and more than 200 scientific papers in the field of biomolecular electronics and dielectrophoresis. He has received several awards, including in 2001 being the first recipient of the Herman P Schwan Award for work in biodielectrics. He serves on the editorial boards of several scientific journals, including acting as editor-in-chief of the IET journal Nanobiotechnology. Stewart Smith, RCUK Academic Fellow, School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh He has a PhD in microelectronics and has authored over 60 scientific papers on subjects ranging from implantable drug delivery systems to test structures for the characterisation of MEMS processes. He is based at the Scottish Microelectronics Centre in Edinburgh where he works on the development of biomedical microsystems. He is a member of the technical committee for the IEEE International Conference on Microelectronic Test Structures.
