Photonic Nanomedicine

Photonic nanomedicine provides opportunities to create new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities to advance healthcare technology with unprecedented precision and safety. With the rapid evolution of this convergence technology at the interface between nanomedicine and biophotonics, increasing attention is being paid to its potential as a novel platform to enable and facilitate research in nanoscience and engineering. Efforts have been made to drive nanoengineering techniques to ad-vance the capabilities of photomedicine for a variety of biomedical applications including light-mediated/activated sensing, imaging, drug deliv-ery/release and therapeutic intervention. Motivated by these emerging trends, this special issue aims to intro-duce recent interdisciplinary research efforts directed towards the convergence of biophotonics with nano-technology.
