From the Back Cover:

Professor Teruo Okano is an authority in the science and technology of responsive polymer gels and controlled release using soft materials. He has been contributing to the field fundamentally by designing on the molecular level, various responsive gels tailored to the needs of specific individual applications. He is one of the first scientists to develop the controlled release matrix for cancers and other diseases. This book will be a reference for researchers and graduate students who work and study in the field of chemistry, chemical and agricultural industries, pharmacy, or medicine.

About the Author:

Teruo Okano is Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Tokyo Women's Medical University. He is also an Adjunct Professor at the Center for Controlled Chemical Delivery at the University of Utah. In 1997, Dr. Okano became a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). He received his Ph.D. in polymer chemistry from the Department of Applied Chemistry at Waseda University in 1979. He is the author or co-author of more than 300 papers and has contributed chapters to more than 80 books. Dr. Okano has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Award of the Japanese Society for Biomaterials, and the Clemson Award for Basic Research, Society for Biomaterials, both in 1997.
