Surface functionalization of nanoparticles for nanomedicine

Author affiliations


Control of interactions between nanoparticles and biosystems is essential for the effective utilization of these materials in biomedicine. A wide variety of nanoparticle surface structures have been developed for imaging, sensing, and delivery applications. In this research Highlight, we will emphasize advances in tailoring nanoparticle interfaces for implementation in nanomedicine.
