Innovation in Nanomedicine through Materials Nanoarchitectonics

Innovation in Nanomedicine through Materials Nanoarchitectonics

Piotr Kujawa and Françoise M. Winnik

Materials nanoarchitectonics has led to important innovations in the design and construction of systems in nanoelectronics, nanomachinery, and energy conversion. Recent publications point to the fact that the same approach may be applied successfully to other fields. In this Perspective, we define the key features of materials nanoarchitectonics and examine how they can be used to address current challenges in nanomedicine, placing emphasis on colloidal agents for therapeutic and diagnostic applications.

Nanoarchitectonics special issue in Langmuir

A special issue about Nanoarchitectonics has just been published by Langmuir.

Professor Winnik (Executive Editor) and David G. Whitten wrote a preface to this issue that you can read here.

Our former group member Piotr Kujawa and Prof. Winnik also contributed in reviewing Bio-related applications of nanoarchitectonics, here.
