The convergence of the regenerative principles in Nanomedicine and Tissue Engineering promise to create new avenues in Regenerative Medicine. It is now recognized the great advantages of using nanomaterials for controlled drug delivery, scaffolding, sensing and imaging applications. Emerging engineering strategies possibly synthesizing nanosystems with different compositions and architectures. Multi-modal nanomaterials are now being designed by means of incorporating different stimuli-responsive functionalities, peptides, antibodies and imaging probes towards targeting specific cells, tissues and organs while offering the possibility to track its fate in real-time.
This Special Issue focus on the most recent advances related to the design of different nanobiomaterials, functionalization strategies, processing methods, biological performance assessment and safety, and its applications for theranostics of cancer, musculoskeletal and neurodegenerative diseases/disorders.
