Patients are seeking for better health care, while healthcare providers and insurance companies are calling for cost-effective diagnosis and treatments. The biomedical industry thus faces the challenge of developing devices and materials that offer benefits to both patients and healthcare industry. The combination of biology and nanotechnology is expected to revolutionize biomedical research by exploiting novel phenomena and properties of materials present at nanometer length scale. This will lead to the creation of functional materials, devices, and systems through control of matter on the nanometer meter scale and the direct application of nanomaterials to biological targets. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2007, 2016.
