Here is Chris Phoenix's review of Nanomedicine:
Robert Freitas is the world's expert in nanomedicine, the use of advanced nanotechnology to build and run medical devices. He's writing a massive reference work on the topic.
Nanomedicine Volume I: Basic Capabilities discusses power, sensing, heat dissipation, control, navigation, and anatomy (with lots of numbers useful to engineers). And a lot of physics: Freitas bases his designs on the fundamental equations, and he shows his work. In fact, when I need to review the use of a physics formula, the first book I grab is Nanomedicine I. Then I try Nanosystems. My physics textbook usually stays on the shelf.
Nanomedicine IIA: Biocompatibility is an equally detailed book, with over 6,000 references. It goes into encyclopedic detail on immunology, cellular adhesion, and a wide variety of other topics. How can nanorobots hide from the immune system? Section 220.127.116.11. Will nanorobots make you throw up? Section 18.104.22.168. Are pure buckyballs biocompatible? Section 22.214.171.124. Will proteins stick to sapphire? Section 126.96.36.199. How elastic is the surface of an erythrocyte? Section 188.8.131.52.2.
(Why do all of these start with 15? Because in the original plan for a three-volume work on nanomedicine, chapter 15 was the biocompatibility chapter. But as Freitas did his research, the chapter grew...and grew...)
