Nanotechnology could be defined as the technology that has allowed for the control, manipulation, study and manufacturing of structure and devices in the ‘nanometer’ size range. These nano-sized objects e.g., “nanoparticles”, take on novel properties and functions that differ markedly from those seen from items made of identical materials. The small size customized surface, improved solubility and multi-functionality of nanoparticles will continue to open many doors and create new biomedical applications. Indeed, the novel properties of nanoparticles offer the ability to interact with complex cellular functions in new ways. This rapidly growing field requires cross- disciplinary research and provides opportunities to design and develop multifunctional devices that can target, diagnose and treat devastating diseases.
