As the impact and importance of nanotechnology continues to grow, nanomedicine and biotechnology have become areas of increased development. Drug delivery by nanoparticulates and nanocoatings for medicial devices are among the many new techniques on the horizon.

Years from now we will laugh at the approaches to treating disease we currently consider state of the art. To prepare for the future of medicine, biomedical engineers must have a deeply rooted understanding of the role of bionanotechnology.
