BioMEMS devices are as important to the future of medicine as microprocessors were to the computer revolution at the end of the last century. BioMEMS is a science that includes more than simply finding biomedical applications for microelectromechanical systems devices. It represents an expansion into a host of new polymer materials, microfluidic physics, surface chemistries and their modification, 'soft' fabrication techniques, biocompatibility, and cost-effective solutions to biomedical problems. It brings together the creative talents of electrical, mechanical, optical, and chemical engineers, materials specialists, clinical laboratory scientists, and physicians. BioMEMS devices are the platform upon which nanomedicine will be delivered.
Based on the author's course on bioMEMS at the University of Minnesota, this book is an introduction to the science and a survey of the state of the art. Topics include microfabrication of silicon, glass, and polymer devices, microfluidics and electrokinetics, sensors, actuators, and drug-delivery systems, micro-total-analysis systems and lab-on-a-chip devices, detection and measuring systems, genomics, proteomics, DNA, and protein microarrays, emerging applications in medicine, research, and homeland security, and packaging, biocompatibility, and ISO 10993 testing.
The first text of its kind dedicated to bioMEMS training, this book is suitable for a single semester course for senior and graduate-level students, or as an introduction to others interested or already working in the field.
"A clear, well-organized, well-balanced book. Recommended." --CHOICE, July 2006.

The world is on the threshold of a revolution that will change medicine and how patients are treated forever.
Bringing together the creative talents of electrical, mechanical, optical and chemical engineers, materials specialists, clinical-laboratory scientists, and physicians, the science of biomedical microelectromechanical systems (bioMEMS) promises to deliver sensitive, selective, fast, low cost, less invasive, and more robust methods for diagnostics, individualized treatment, and novel drug delivery.
This book is an introduction to this multidisciplinary technology and the current state of micromedical devices in use today. The first text of its kind dedicated to bioMEMS training. Fundamentals of BioMEMS and Medical Microdevices is Suitable for a single semester course for senior and graduate-level students, or as an introduction to others interested or already working in the field.About the Author:
Dr. Steven S. Saliterman is Chairman of the Department of Medicine, Methodist Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and is in private practice in Internal Medicine. His research is in optical and microwave applications of bioMEMS. He is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Minnesota, where he teaches bioMEMS and Physiology. He is also a Senior Aviation Medical Examiner for the Federal Aviation Administration. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Internal Medicine, and CLIA certified Clinical Laboratory Director.
He graduated from the University of Minnesota Summa cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa in 1973; and Mayo Medical School in Rochester, Minnesota in 1977; and Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in 1980. He is a former intern at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas and research fellow at the NASA Ames research Center in Mountain View, California. He is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians, cofounder and past President of the Mayo Medical School Alumni Society, and member of the Mayo Plummer Society.
His interest also include electrical and mechanical engineering, computer design, and software development. His early work in computer design received achievement awards from the Professional Engineers Society of Minnesota and the United States Army. he participated in early designs of the Space Shuttle Space Lab and developed implantable devices for space research. He has designed and patented a system for simulating critical care patient management, inclusive of a manikin apparatus for practicing heart catheterization. His work has been published in such peer-reviewed journals as Biopolymers, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and Expert review of Medical Devices.
He has been a guest lecturer at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Mayo Clinic; and recently has been a guest speaker at the design of Medical Devices conference sponsored by University of Minnesota, and the MedEdge International conference sponsored by Minnesota Medical Alley.
