The integration of nanotechnology with biotechnology has led to great opportunities and revolutionizing technologies in biology and medicine. Targeted delivery of therapeutic agents, vaccine developments, imaging and novel diagnostic procedures have attracted prime attention of the scientists, who have been able to develop effective and validated nanoparticles and marketable products for human medicine. These developments are expeditiously extending to veterinary medicine because of the similar guiding principles and close linkages between the two disciplines of medicine. Nanotechnology thus has a great potential to revolutionize veterinary medicine, animal production systems and food security. It is important that these emerging technologies form a part of the curriculum of veterinary sciences, particularly in the context of One Health initiatives. This book presents an understanding of the concept, current status and future potential of nanotechnology in veterinary and animal sciences.

"Dr. Sudhi Ranjan Garg is a senior Professor of Veterinary Public Health and Epidemiology in the College of Veterinary Sciences, Lala Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences at Hisar (India). He has also worked as Head of the Department. Dr. Garg obtained the degree of Bachelor of Veterinary Sciences and Animal Husbandry in 1979. The Indian Council of Agricultural Research awarded Junior Research Fellowship to him for postgraduate studies. Dr. Garg completed his Master of Veterinary Sciences in Veterinary Public Health and Epidemiology in 1982. He was later awarded Russian Government Scholarship for doctoral studies and obtained Ph.D. from the prestigious All-Russian Institute of Experimental Veterinary Medicine in Moscow in 1991. Dr. Garg has about 32 years experience of extensive graduate and postgraduate teaching and research in veterinary sciences. He has guided many students for their Master’s and Doctoral degrees. Dr. Garg works as a subject matter specialist for many organizations. Recognizing his contributions, the Indian Association of Veterinary Public Health Specialists has honoured him as Fellow of the Association.
Dr. Garg has been propagating the ‘One Health’ concept for several years. He has attended a large number of scientific conferences and meetings to present invited and lead papers. He has over 100 scientific papers and more than 10 books to his credit that address the current issues in the livestock health and production, public health, and one health. Dr. Garg has been actively associated in the activities of the Alliance for Rabies Control (UK), Global Alliance for Rabies Control (USA), and the Commonwealth Veterinary Association. Dr. Garg also works as a resource faculty in the Continuing Veterinary Education Programme run by the Veterinary Council of India and other training programmes. He is a Life-Member of the Indian Association of Veterinary Public Health Specialists, Indian Association of Veterinary Microbiologists, Immunologists and Specialists in Infectious Diseases, Association of Food Scientists and Technologists of India, and the Association for Prevention and Control of Rabies in India. Dr. Garg is currently working as a Member in the Editorial Board of the journal Microbes and Health published by the Bangladesh Society of Veterinary Microbiology and Public Health and in the Journal of Foodborne and Zoonotic Diseases."
