Catherine Picart of LMGP has co-edited Layer-by-Layer Films for Biomedical Applications, published by Wiley. The 530-page multi-authored volume is intended for graduate and post-graduate students, research scientists, and industrial R&D engineers. Picart, an expert in the subject, worked with co-editors Jean-Claude Voegel of Inserm and Frank Caruso of the University of Melbourne, Australia to compile contributions from an international slate of authors.
While it is certainly not the first book about layer-by-layer films, it is the only one to date to specifically address biomedical applications for the films, whose potential uses include stem cell, drug delivery, vascular and bone devices, and implantable electrodes. Picart’s lab focuses mainly on the films and is one of the leading labs in the field, with two patents filed and two European Research Council grants under its belt.
