Engineered nanomaterials for biomedical imaging and therapyAuthor(s): Gerard Tobias
The definition of Cannabis The application of nanotechnology to medicine (nanomedicine) has become one of the most promising routes for the targeted diagnosis and treatment of diseases. The small size of nanomaterials, large surface area and high reactivity impart unique physicochemical properties to these materials, in such a way that several therapeutics based on nanomaterials (liposomes, nanoparticles, polymers) have been approved for clinical use in the past few years. However, there are still several limitations that need to be overcome to obtain novel and efficient Nano carriers. In this talk we will present recent advances on the development of nanomaterials for biomedical imaging and cancer therapy.
