Photomedicine and Photo Nanosystems

Description

During the last decades, extensive research on nanomaterials has shown a lot of novel applications in electronics, photonics, biology, and medicine. No doubt, one of the greatest values of nanomaterials will be in the development of new and effective medical treatments (i.e., nanomedicine). Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology to health, by using different nanosystems and nanodevices.

This issue will be focused on the potential of nanomedicine, including the development of nanoparticles for diagnostic and screening purposes, drug delivery systems and single-virus detection, and nanodevices for alternative treatment methods. The paths between fundamental research and potential electronic, photonic, and biological applications will provide a unique language for international academics, industries, researchers, and students working in the areas of nanofabrication, nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, nanomedicine, nanophysics, and their photochemical and photophysical aspects.

This issue will cover current topics and recent progress in targeted nanomedicine and therapeutic concepts, overcoming biological barriers, medical diagnostics and sensor devices, photodynamic therapy and regenerative medicine, and nanomedicines for gene delivery, and safety aspects of nanomaterials for medical applications will be addressed.

We invite authors to submit original research and review articles describing the latest scientific and technological research results in the following topics. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Nanofabrication
  • Nanophotonics
  • Nanomedicine
  • Nanophysics
  • Medical nanodevices and nanorobots
  • Nano-optics and nanophotonics
  • Nanobiotechnology and Nanomedicine
  • Nanostructures (Nanocrystals, Nanotubes, Nanowires, Nanolayers/Nanomembranes, etc.) for nanosystems
  • Biosensors and biosensor networks
  • Drug discovery and development

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijp/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
