Research in nanomedicine aims to use engineered nanoparticles to treat or diagnose disease, with much work focusing on the delivery of drugs to target sites. The recent Scientific Reports papers selected here demonstrate different approaches to nanoparticle design and synthesis, and how these materials may be used to deliver a range of drugs to disparate targets.
