Nanotechnology in drug delivery and tissue engineering: from discovery to applications

Nano Lett. 2010 Sep 8;10(9):3223-30. doi: 10.1021/nl102184c.


The application of nanotechnology in medicine, referred to as nanomedicine, is offering numerous exciting possibilities in healthcare. Herein, we discuss two important aspects of nanomedicine, drug delivery and tissue engineering, highlighting the advances we have recently experienced, the challenges we are currently facing, and what we are likely to witness in the near future.
