What is Nanomedicine

Nanomedicine is the application of nanoscale science and engineering approaches for the improvement of medical care. Nanomedicine is the focus of the Hsieh Institute because it offers the potential to manipulate materials and therapeutic agents at the scale of molecules, so that medications and diagnostics can be precisely delivered for the most challenging diseases, and personalized to the individual. The Institute intends to unlock the potential of nanoscale science and engineering within integrated programs of research, and to focus on cancer, because it today kills more Americans than any other disease.
