Summary
Nanomedicine is a developing field that includes different disciplines such as material science, chemistry, and engineering and medicine devoted to the design, synthesis and construction of high-tech nanostructures. The ability of these structures to have their chemical and physical properties tuned by structural modification has allowed their use in drug-delivery systems, gene-therapy delivery and various types of theranostic approaches. Colloidal noble metal nanoparticles and other nanostructures have many therapeutic and diagnostic applications. The concept of drug targeting as a magic bullet has led to much research in chemical modification to design and optimize the binding to targeted receptors. It is important to understand the precise relationship between the drug and the carrier, and its ability to target specific tissues, and pathogens to make an efficient drug-delivery system. This book covers advances based on different drug-delivery systems: polymeric and hyper-branched nanomaterials, carbon-based nanomaterials, nature-inspired nanomaterials and pathogen-based carriers

Biographical or historical data
Mahdi Karimi received his BSc in medical laboratory science from the Iran University of Medical Sciences. He then earned an MSc in medical biotechnology from Tabriz University of Medical Sciences and joined the Tarbiat Modares University as a PhD student in nanobiotechnology. He went on to join the department of medical nanotechnology at Iran University of Medical Sciences as an assistant professor. Maryam Rad Mansori received her BSc degree in biology from Tabriz University in 2008. In 2013 she received an MSc degree in clinical biochemistry from Isfahan University of Medical Science. After graduation, she continued her studies in the design of therapeutic nanoparticles for drug delivery. Her current research interests include biomimetic nanoparticle design in drug/gene delivery systems. Navid Rabiee graduated with a BSc from Shahid Beheshti University, Iran, in 2016. In 2018, he received his MSc in inorganic chemistry from Shahid Beheshti University, Iran. In 2017, he joined the Advances Nanobiotechnology and Nanomedicine Research Group to collaborate with Mahdi Karimi's research lab at the Iran University of Medical Science, in association Michael R. Hamblin from Harvard Medical School, USA. Michael R. Hamblin is a principal investigator at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, and an associate professor at Harvard Medical School. He is the Editor-in-Chief of Photobiomodulation, Photomedicine and Laser Surgery and he has authored or edited 23 textbooks on photodynamic therapy and photomedicine."
