Applications of Electrochemistry and Nanotechnology in Biology and Medicine II
The study of electrochemical nanotechnology has emerged as researchers apply electrochemistry to nanoscience and nanotechnology. These two related volumes in the Modern Aspects of Electrochemistry Series review recent developments and breakthroughs in the specific application of electrochemistry and nanotechnology to biology and medicine. Internationally renowned experts contribute chapters that address both fundamental and practical aspects of several key emerging technologies in biomedicine, such as the processing of new biomaterials, biofunctionalization of surfaces, characterization of biomaterials, discovery of novel phenomena and biological processes occurring at the molecular level. Noam Eliaz is an Associate Professor at Tel-Aviv University, Israel, where he serves as the Head of The Biomaterials and Corrosion Laboratory and as the first Head of the multi-faculty Materials and Nanotechnologies Program. He also serves as a Chief Editor of the journal Corrosion Reviews (jointly with Ron Latanision). He received his B.Sc. and Ph.D. (direct track) in Materials Engineering, both cum laude , from Ben-Gurion University. After completing his doctorate, he became the first ever materials scientist to receive, simultaneously, a Fulbright postdoctoral award and a Rothschild postdoctoral fellowship. He then worked for two years in the H.H. Uhlig Corrosion Laboratory at M.I.T. To-date, he has contributed nearly 200 journal and conference publications, including 27 invited talks, as well as 4 book chapters. He is currently editing a book on Degradation of Implant Materials , to be published by Springer during 2011. He has garnered numerous accolades, including the T.P. Hoar Award for the best paper published in Corrosion Science during 2001, and the 2010 Herbert H. Uhlig Award granted by NACE International. His main research interests include corrosion, electrodeposition, biomaterials and bio-ferrography.. His main research interests include corrosion, electrodeposition, biomaterials and bio-ferrography.
