On the Horizons of Medicine and Healthcare
NanoFrontiers 1, May 2007
The NanoFrontiers newsletter reports on achievements
toward realizing the immense potential of nanotechnology. It continues and updates the discussion begun at the
February 2006 NanoFrontiers workshop, co-sponsored
by the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies, National
Institutes of Health, and National Science Foundation.
Issues will provide samplings of recent developments in
selected areas—accomplishments that hint at new nanotechnology-enabled tools, products, and applications
that can be used for the good of humankind and the planet. This inaugural issue focuses on nanomedicine, highlighting a few nanotechnology developments on the
path toward improvements in human health
and healthcare. Cancer-focused efforts illustrate the progress and the promise of nanotechnology.
