Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanomedicine is an adaptive tool accommodating a rich background for scientific research and technological development, with the field expanding to areas such as novel approaches for cancer treatment, immunotherapy, vaccine development, gene delivery, and theranostic tools, to name a few.

The scope of the present Special Issue is to gain more insight into the versatile and adaptive nature of nanomedicine in biology and medical applications.

In this context, I invite researchers to submit their original communications, perspectives, and research and review articles on novel applications of nanomedicine, theranostic applications, solid-state nanoparticles, vaccine development, immunotherapy, tissue engineering, and cancer therapeutics.

The concept of nanomedicine has evolved significantly in recent decades, leveraging the unique phenomenon known as the enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect. This has facilitated major advancements in targeted drug delivery, imaging, and individualized therapy through the integration of nanotechnology principles into medicine. Numerous nanomedicines have been developed and applied for disease treatment, with a particular focus on cancer therapy. Recently, nanomedicine has been utilized in various advanced fields, including diagnosis, vaccines, immunotherapy, gene delivery, and tissue engineering. Multifunctional nanomedicines facilitate concurrent medication delivery, therapeutic monitoring, and imaging, allowing for immediate responses and personalized treatment plans. This review concerns the major advancement of nanomaterials and their potential applications in the biological and medical fields. Along with this, we also mention the various clinical translations of nanomedicine and the major challenges that nanomedicine is currently facing to overcome the clinical translation barrier.
