Special Issue Information
Many biological systems present features over different length scales ranging down to the low nanometer range. Nanotechnology involves the manipulation of matter at this length scale. As such, it can be used to intervene on the evolution of those systems with unprecedented precision. The blend of nanotechnology and biology, biomedical nanotechnology, has long been used to tackle problems in fields related to life sciences. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect high-quality invited articles on biomedical nanotechnology, biotechnology, and nanomaterials with possible applications in medical science. The papers can either present experimental results or expose a theoretical model or framework, or be an exhaustive, far-reaching review paper on one of the many interesting subject areas of biomedical nanotechnology. As for some examples of topics that are considered within the scope for publication in this Special Issue, it is worth listing:
- Engineering of new platforms and nanomaterials to study cell material interactions at the biointerface.
- The conception and development of functional nanomaterials or biomimetic materials for tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, or the creation of in vitro models for testing the efficacy of therapeutics and treatments.
- Innovative approaches to tailoring disease prevention and treatment that takes into account differences in people’s genes, environments, and lifestyles (precision medicine).
- The rational design and fabrication of drug delivery systems.
- The development of new approaches for the detection of targeted biomarkers at the picomole level. The design and fabrication of biomedical sensors.
- The development of new sensing devices and techniques, including optical imaging, spectroscopy, and spectrometry.
- Artificial intelligence for life science.
We invite skilled, motivated scientists with a background in biomedical nanotechnology to submit to their work. Publication of this work in this Special Issue will contribute to increasing the visibility of this research, advancing the field of biomedical nanotechnology, and creating and consolidating a community of scientists that can be hailed as renowned experts in the field.
