Special Issue "Advanced Nanomaterials for Potential Use in Healthcare "
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2020.
Interests: Chemo- and radio-therapeutics; nanomaterials and formulation
As a scientific community, we strive to create and improve therapies to treat disease. If we can enhance the efficacy of a therapeutically-active compound by incorporating it into a biocompatible material and, at the same time, limit its toxicity, this is considered a success. However, the real success is getting such materials translated into the clinic. The ability of materials to target disease and control-release their cargo give healthcare providers the ability to improve compliance and health outcomes.
Nanomaterials have been an exciting type of material to explore, but to ensure that our work can move into the clinic, we need to ensure biocompatibility and the improved performance of therapies. Thus, I invite you my colleagues to submit an article for review and potential publication in this Special Issue of Materials entitled “Advanced Nanomaterials for Potential Use in Healthcare”. If your work is in the preparation and characterization of such materials and/or their use in cell or animal models, we would greatly appreciate this opportunity to spotlight your efforts in this area. Thank you.
Dr. Anthony J. Di Pasqua
