The Potential of Nanomaterials for Drug Delivery, Cell Tracking, and Regenerative Medicine 2014


Recent progress in bio- and nanotechnology has led to the development of a rich variety of novel materials precisely engineered and tailored at the nanoscale. Such materials hold great promise to revolutionize traditional medical treatments and therapies and allow treatment of currently incurable diseases. This annual special issue aims at bringing together and highlighting the latest advances in the use of nanomaterials in biomedical technologies such as drug delivery, cell tracking, imaging, and regenerative medicine. In addition, this issue aims at revealing current challenges and obstacles which lie on the path to fully integrating these promising nanomaterial based technologies in medicine. Further, this special issue aims to provide guidance to researchers in the field of bionanotechnology and also inform the community of the future directions of the field.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will inspire the next generation of nanomaterials for applications in biomedical treatments and therapies.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Nanoparticles as drug carriers
  • Nanoporous materials for drug delivery
  • Nanoparticles for biological imaging
  • Nanoparticles for cancer therapies
