Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Light-assisted technologies are a tool usually used in biomedical settings, and also holds great prospective value for precise medicine, including use in disease treatment, diagnosis and imaging, and biosensors. Notwithstanding the enormous efforts of pharmacists and clinician, efficient and hypertoxicity light-assisted technologies for providing precision theranostics in vitro and in vivo remain to be found. Therefore, new strategies and systems for increasing theranostics performances are urgently needed, and nanotechnology, including the use of nanodrugs and nanomaterials, have been demonstrated as very promising platforms. This Special Issue aims to give a collection and overview of the most recent progress in the topic of light-assisted precise medicine and its nanodrug, bioimaging and biosensor applications. This Special Issue plans to provide selected contributions on advances in the synthesis and applications of molecule and nano-system related to light-assisted precise medicine. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: nanodrug and drug delivery; phototherapy; optical imaging; optical biosensors and analysis; methods for pharmacodynamic evaluation; future perspectives for light-assisted precise medicine; and the role of light technology in medicine.
