This book explores in depth a wide range of functional biomaterials-based systems for drug, gene delivery, and biomedical aspects. The chapters cover newer technologies such as polymeric micelle, pH-responsive biomaterials, stimuli-responsive hydrogels, silk fibroin, inorganic biomaterials, synthetic biomaterials, 3D printed biomaterials, metallic biomaterials, ceramic and hybrid biomaterials. It also describes the theranostic approaches for cancer therapy, the biomaterials-based nanofibers scaffolds in tissue engineering, as well as the strategies applications of metallic biomaterials for the medical and dental prosthetic field. This newer and updated approach will be attractive for biomedical engineering students working on materials science in the development of novel drug delivery strategies. The book will be an important reference for researchers and professionals working on biomaterial research in the pharmaceutical and medical fields.

About the Author
Dr. Sougata Jana has completed his Ph.D. in pharmaceutical technology from Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology (MAKAUT), West Bengal (Formerly Known as WBUT), India. He has spent 14 years in pharmacy, including teaching, research, and health services. Sougata has published 30 research and review articles in different national and international peer-reviewed journals. He has also edited 10 books and published more than 45 book chapters in edited books by Elsevier, Springer, Wiley VCH, CRC Press, and Taylor & Francis Group. He is a reviewer for peer-reviewed international journals. Sougata is a life member of the Association of Pharmaceutical Teachers of India (APTI) and holds an associateship with the Institution of Chemists (AIC), India. He successfully guided 17 postgraduate students in their research projects. Sougata is working on drug delivery science and technology, including modification of synthetic and natural biopolymers, microparticles, nanoparticles, and semisolids and interpenetrating network (IPN) system for controlled drug delivery.
Dr. Subrata Jana is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry, Indira Gandhi National Tribal University (Central University), Amarkantak, Madhya Pradesh, India. His current research focuses on the design and synthesis of artificial receptors for the recognition of anions, cations, and biomolecules along with biodegradable polymeric-based carrier systems for the delivery of drug molecules. So far, he has published around 40 research papers in peer-reviewed international journals and contributed more than 20 book chapters in edited books published by internationally renowned publishers. He is currently serving as executive editor of Mekal Insights, the official research journal of IGNTU. He also served as a reviewer for international journals.

Subrata has obtained his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST), Shibpur, India. Then he worked with Professor (Dr.) Fraser Hof at the University of Victoria, Canada, and Dr. Kenneth J Woycechowsky at the University of Utah, USA, as a postdoc. Overall, he has extensively studied the supramolecular behavior of the host-guest interaction and synthesis of different heterocyclic moieties.
