Professor Co-Authors Book on Nanomedicine & Nanotechnology
September 13, 2016
Nanotechnology Leader: Renat Letfullin is a fellow of the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers and a senior member of the Optical Society of America.
Physics and Optical Engineering Associate Professor Renat Letfullin has co-authored a new textbook, Computational Nanomedicine and Nanotechnology: Lectures with Computer Practicums, which introduces the basics of nanomedicine and nanotechnology to graduate students and advanced undergraduates.
The textbook emphasizes how the use of chemistry and light with nanoparticles can serve as treatments and therapies for cancer. Applications to biomedical research discussed in the book range from optical biosensing to photodynamic therapies.
Letfullin is a fellow of the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, a senior member of the Optical Society of America, and a well-respected international researcher. His research interests include the areas of optics, laser physics, nanophotonics, and nanomedicine. He has discovered new phenomena and scientific effects in these fields, including discoveries of a plasmon explosion of nanoparticles, new dynamics modes in selective nanophototherapy, and Radio Frequency (RF) and X-ray optics of nanoparticles.
He is editor for the research journal International Journal of Theoretical Physics, Group Theory and Nonlinear Optics, published by Nova Science, is an editorial board member/reviewer for several high-ranking scientific journals, and has chaired numerous conferences.
The new textbook was written with University of Missouri-St. Louis Chancellor Thomas F. George, a professor of chemistry and physics.
