Medical Biotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications


Phuc Van Pham


Medical biotechnology is the use of living cells and cell materials to research and produce pharmaceutical and diagnostic products that help treat and prevent human diseases. Most medical biotechnologists work in academic or industrial settings. In academic laboratories, these professionals conduct experiments as part of medical research studies; industrial biotechnologists work toward developing drugs or vaccines. The medical biotechnology field has helped bring to market microbial pesticides, insect-resistant crops, and environmental clean-up techniques.

In this book, some fundamentals and applications of medical biotechnology are represented:

- Current trends of medical biotechnology

- Stem cell technology

- Assisted reproductive technology

- Molecular Diagnosis

- Gene therapy

- Biopharmaceuticals

- Biomaterials and tissue engineering

- Biobank

- Bioethics
