About this book

This book gives a concise overview of bionanomaterials with applications for skin regeneration. The advantages and challenges of nanoscale materials are covered in detail, giving a basic view of the skin structure and conditions that require transdermal or topical applications. Medical applications, such as wound healing, care for burns, skin disease, and cosmetic care, such as aging of the skin and photodamage, and how they benefit from bionanomaterials, are described in detail. A final chapter is devoted to the ethical and social issues related to the use of bionanomaterials for skin regeneration. This is an ideal book for researchers in materials science, medical scientists specialized in dermatology, and cosmetic chemists working in formulations. It can also serve as a reference for nanotechnologists, dermatologists, microbiologists, engineers, and polymer chemists, as well as students studying in these fields.

About the authors

Mihaela D. Leonida is a Professor of Chemistry at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Metropolitan Campus, in Teaneck, NJ (mleonida@fdu.edu). She received a M.S.and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Polytechnic University in Bucharest, Romania, and a second Ph.D. in Chemistry from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT. While teaching, she has mentored research with over sixty students. Her scientific interests are broad, from “wiring” enzymes to bionanomaterials with antimicrobial and anti-proliferation activity, to detecting art forgeries, to materials and techniques used by artisans of times past.

 

Ish Kumar is an Associate Professor of Chemistry at Fairleigh Dickinson University,  Metropolitan Campus, in Teaneck, NJ (ikumar@fdu.edu).  He earned his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Panjab University, in Chandigarh, India. During his years as faculty Dr. Kumar has supervised research of more than twenty students. His research interests involve designing new molecular inhibitors using the tools of computational chemistry, enzyme structures, enzyme kinetics and chemical synthesis.
