The design and synthesis of materials in the nanoscale size range to address human healthcare-related issues continues to receive increasing interest. Nanomaterials are being increasingly used to develop new methods of disease diagnosis and treatment, and they are providing novel paradigms to break through current limitations of medicine. The application of nanotechnology for medical purposes has been termed nanomedicine and is defined as the use of nanomaterials for diagnosis, imaging, monitoring, prevention and treatment of diseases. Since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Doxil, an anticancer nanotherapeutic drug using PEGylated liposome carrier for the first time in 1995, more and more nano-drugs are either approved for use, or in clinical trials.
However, there is still a long way toward the complete revolution for nanomedicine in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. As these nanoparticles are highly complex products and difficult to characterize, there are still many challenges, for example, how to have robust and consistent manufacturing process, how to realize the early determination of diseases, how to enhance therapeutic efficiency and reduce the side effect, how to realize the precise personalized treatment, and what are the interactions between nanomaterials and biological systems.

This special issue will include a series of topical reviews and original research articles that highlight the recent advances in diagnosis, imaging and therapy of nanomaterials.
