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:
Prof. Steven S. Saliterman teaches bioMEMS and senior design in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Minnesota. He is a faculty member of the Nano & Microsystems Applications Center, past Chairman of the Department of Medicine at Methodist Hospital, diplomat of the American Board of Internal Medicine, and CLIA certified Clinical Laboratory Director.
He is a former research intern at the NASA Johnson Space Center and research fellow at the NASA Ames Research Center. He participated in early design of the Space Shuttle Space Lab and developed implantable devices for space research. He designed and patented a system for simulating critical care patient management, inclusive of a manikin apparatus for practicing heart catheterization.
His current research is in biomaterials, bioMEMS and nanotechnologies. He has been a guest lecturer at Johns Hopkins and the Mayo Clinic; and guest speaker at the design of Medical Devices conference sponsored by University of Minnesota, and the MedEdge International conference sponsored by Minnesota Medical Alley.
