Tailored synthesis of ultra-small nanoparticles for biomedical applications

Abstract:

Accurate and early diagnosis of disease is a critical worldwide challenge in healthcare. The emergence of nanomaterials has opened up the possibility of engineering new and improved diagnostic and therapeutic tools which can interact on a sub-cellular level. Ultra-small (< 3 nm) metal-oxide nanoparticles (NPs) have been highlighted as particularly strong candidates for enhancing positive T1 image contrast in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), an important and powerful diagnost...
