Applications of Nanoparticles in Biology


  • The NIH (GM077173) and NSF (Center for Hierarchical Manufacturing, DMI-0531171) are acknowledged.


The wide variety of core materials available, coupled with tunable surface properties, make nanoparticles an excellent platform for a broad range of biological and biomedical applications. This Review provides an introduction to nanoparticle–biomolecular interactions as well as recent applications of nanoparticles in biological sensing, delivery, and imaging of live cells and tissues.
