Nanoparticles have been explored for their potential use in cancer diagnosis and therapy due to their unique properties. In addition, nanoparticles have provided significant progress in cancer theranostics, in which both diagnosis and therapeutic functions can be achieved simultaneously. In the early stage of theranostics, imaging agents and therapeutic agents were simply carried in nanoparticles. However, theranostics has advanced in recent years with the aim of monitoring treatment subjects to increase drug efficacy and safety based on an oncology understanding of the overall healthcare system, as well as to eliminate the unnecessary treatment of patients.
The aim of this Special Issue (“Nanoscience and Health: Tiny Technology Raises Big Questions”) is to highlight advances in the development of a nanotechnology-based healthcare system that can be applied to the treatment and diagnosis of various diseases such as cancer, as well as infectious and genetic diseases, through an overall understanding of disease. Our Special Issue invites the submission of full size articles, short communications, case reports, and reviews.
We would be delighted if you could contribute to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
