The Road from Nanomedicine to Precision Medicine

edited by Shaker Mousa, Raj Bawa and Gerald F. Audette

“The first 3 volumes in this series have been inspirational and form the most definitive and useful references for anyone wishing to know about the technical, clinical, legal, business and regulatory aspects of nanomedicine. The topic has in the past raised expectations to levels that were probably too high, but anyone reading these books will understand the opportunities and barriers much better. This fourth volume was awaited with great interest.”
