The past 15 years of nanomedicine revolutionized the entire healthcare field and opened the medical and pharmaceutical mindset to approaches and improvements that have not been considered feasible before. These improvements are related to the utilization of novel biomaterials, superior controlled drug delivery, ultra-specific targeting, overcoming drug resistance, more patient-friendly drug administration methods, and earlier diagnosis.

This book, the second volume in the Nanomedicine’s Most Cited series, focuses on nano-enabled medical applications. It discusses a wide variety of medical applications that had been impossible without nanoscience and nanotechnology, including drug carrier platforms and targeting strategies, theranostics, biomolecular corona formation around nanoparticles, nanodiamonds, carbon nanotubes, quantum dots, use of microfluidics, and multi-electrode arrays to accelerate preclinical and clinical translation. It also presents important developments in nanomedicine in the areas of cancer treatment, neuroscience, ophthalmology, and tissue engineering. The book will serve as inspiration for further research, development, and pursuit of solutions for therapeutic challenges.
