"Medical Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine" by Harry F. Tibbals, translated to chinese language by Prof. Dr. Zhenxi Zhang (Director, Institute of Biomedical Analytical Technology and Instrumentation, School of Life Science and Technology, Xi'an Jiaotong University) with his coworkers, and published by Xi'an Jiaotong University Press, Bejing, has recently received "Chinese annual award of the excellent technology imported book" of 2013 year.

Media Reviews: Media Review:
"Medical Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine (Perspectives in Nanotechnology)"
Doyle, D. John MD, PhD
(Doyle is on the faculty of the Cleveland Clinic.)

… "Given that nanomedicine involves the application of fields as diverse as quantum physics, materials science, organic chemistry, molecular biology, semiconductor electronics, microfabrication, and mathematics, one might imagine that finding a good introductory presentation on this topic would be impossible. Fortunately, Tibbals' book is up to the challenge." …

… "As befits an introductory book, the presentation is more comprehensive than deep and should be readily accessible to both the patient physician and the intelligent layman. Some advanced readers may find that the presentation is insufficiently technical as might be appropriate for a graduate level bioengineering textbook. However, each chapter contains a particularly rich selection of references for those  for those readers interested in pursuing a particular topic in detail. ... In conclusion, this book provides a well-written, very well-referenced, modestly illustrated, and clinically focused evaluation of the current state of nanomedicine and its future prospects. Highly recommended."

Author Interview: Medical Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine NanoScienceWorks.org talks with the Dr. H. F. Tibbals, ...author of Medical Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine. This long-awaited research volume, scheduled for publication September 2010, reviews nanotechnology uses across a wide range of medical applications, including imaging, diagnosis, monitoring, drug delivery, surgery, tissue regeneration, and even prosthetics. Unlike many technology-only volumes, Medical Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine is a practical reference book that investigates the impact of nanotechnology on medicine and biomedical sciences, as well as the broader societal and economic effects.
WINNER 2009 CHOICE AWARD OUTSTANDING ACADEMIC TITLE! Fundamentals of Nanotechnology, Gabor L. Hornyak, John J. Moore, Harry F. Tibbals, Joydeep Dutta, ISBN-13 978-1420048032; Nanotechnology is no longer a subdiscipline of chemistry, engineering, or any other field. It represents the convergence of many fields, and therefore demands a new paradigm for teaching. This textbook is for the next generation of nanotechnologists. It surveys the field’s broad landscape, exploring the physical basics such as nanorheology, nanofluidics, and nanomechanics as well as industrial concerns such as manufacturing, reliability, and safety. The authors then explore the vast range of nanomaterials and systematically outline devices and applications in various industrial sectors. This color text is an ideal companion to Introduction to Nanoscience by the same group of esteemed authors. Both titles are also available as the single volume Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Qualifying instructors who purchase either of these volumes (or the combined set) are given online access to a wealth of instructional materials. These include detailed lecture notes, review summaries, slides, exercises, and more. The authors provide enough material for both one- and two-semester courses.

H. F. Tibbals
Dr. Tibbals' research areas are in application of analytical, physical, and electrochemistry to characterization of materials for applications in biomedicine, energy, and sustainable engineering. He is a Chartered Chemist with expertise in spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and electrochemistry. His recent interests have focused on medical device and instrumentation development. He is pursuing application of basic chemical and bio-physics to applications on the nanoscale, and has authored and co-authored several reference and textbooks on nanosciene, nanotechnology, and nanomedicine. He is currently working on development of implantable sensors and scaffolds in collaboration with other Materials Science faculty and with UTA departments of Bioengineering, Electrical Engineering, Biochemistry, as well as UT Southwestern and UTD. Projects include sensors for physiological gases, pH, impedance, and pressure (with Dr. Chiao) and surgical meshes and stents (with Dr. Eberhart and Dr. Jiang).

5732122X-ray marker apparatus and method

A marker apparatus and method for identifying radiation imaging recording media, particularly x-ray media. The apparatus includes a container having a recessed area and a reservoir communicable with the recessed area. A surface, disposed within the recessed area, includes a marking area on which identifying characters are formed using a marking instrument. An imaging media comprised of a material opaque to radiation is disposed within the reservoir. Flow of the imaging media is effected from the reservoir into the recessed area and across the surface to collect at the identifying characters. In one embodiment, the surface is a deformable surface on which depressions are formed, and the imaging media collects in the depressions. In another embodiment, the surface is a magnetic surface which attracts magnetically-attractable imaging media.

5343906Emisson validation system

An emissions validation system is comprised of a plurality of sensors (42), (36), (26), and (34), for monitoring the various emissions and diagnostic aspects of a vehicle (10). An emissions validation system (18) is operable upon refuelling through a refuelling line (20) to interface through an interface (14) to a CPU (28). The CPU (28) retrieves the stored data and transfers it through the interface (14), through an electrical line (22) to a main CPU (26) in the emissions validation system (18). The main CPU (26) then evaluates this data, in addition to monitoring the amount of fuel that is placed back into the vehicle's tank (32). This allows a complete record of the vehicle's history to be maintained.

MSE 5390 - Natural Nanomaterials
Summary: Introduction to natural nanomaterials: the nanostructure and design principles of natural materials and bio-materials on the nanoscale. This special topics survey course explores the relationship between nanoscale structure and properties of natural and biomaterials. The objective is for the student to gain a working understanding of how structure at the nanoscale influences and determines properties both at the nanoscale and at higher scales. The nanoscale focuses on the organization of the material components above the level of the chemical and crystal structure (Angstroms) and below the micro level (microns). Natural and biological materials exhibit features on this level which influence both bulk and surface properties in unique and non-intuitive ways, including strength, elasticity, adhesion, optical, and electrical properties. Living systems utilize many of these properties to perform functions with remarkable efficiencies in materials and energy. The course will also include an introduction to the use of natural products in discovery and design of medical (surgical) materials and drugs. In naturally occurring materials, we find examples of nanostructure and its uses which have not been arrived at by engineering methods, but from which engineers and designers can learn new approaches. In the course we cover a number of illustrative and fascinating examples and review efforts that have been made to systematize design rules for medicine and engineering based on natural structures and processes, or biomimetics.

Nanotechnology Research Directions for Societal Needs in 2020
A 2010 national science policy and strategy workshop sponsored by the National Nanotechnology Iniative (NNI)-NSF. Published on-line as WTEC Report: "Nanotechnology Research Directions for Societal Needs in 2020", M.C. Roco, C.A. Mirkin and M.C. Hersham eds.. 2010 NSF; see Chapter 7: Nanobiosystems, Medicine and Health, by Mirkin C.A., A. Nel, C. S. Thaxton, B.A. Baird, C. Batt, D. Grainger, S.S.Gambhir, D. Akin, O. Zhou, J.F. Stoddart, T.J. Meade, P. Grodzinski, D. Farrell, H.F. Tibbals, J. De Simone. This important report lays the groundwork for phase 2 of the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative, outlining the visions for the next 5 and 10 years, assesses the needs and offers recommendations for the use of nanotechnology in biology and medicine.
