Abstract

The field of nanomedicine is the medical application of nanotechnology. In a broader sense, nanomedicine is the process of diagnosing, treating, curing and preventing diseases; and also dealing with traumatic injury, relieving pain, and preserving/improving human health by using molecular tools and molecular knowledge of the human body. However, the current problems for nanomedicine are the not yet resolved issues pertaining to the toxicity and environmental impact of nanoscale materials. Nanobiomaterial is a multidisciplinary scientific domain with roots in life science, material science and nanotechnology. The basic and applied research of nanobiomaterials has been a very hot topic in materials research for nanobiomedicine and nanobiotechnology, which has developed quickly in biomedical implant and intervention medicine, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, and drug/gene delivery and bioanalysis systems, with an attempt to explore their possible ...
