Abstract

Nanotechnology has already revolutionized disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment, as evidenced by a significant number of FDA, approved materials. In fact, many studies have indicated that nanoparticles can act as drugs and even replace pharmaceutical agents. This talk will first cover advances in the use of nanoparticles as improved drug agents to treat cancer, infections and grow tissues. Moreover, this talk will highlight how the development of nanoparticles has influenced traditional drug discovery and development. There has been a noted increase in combined nanoparticle – drug approaches but some believe the development of nanoparticles has decreased efforts in traditional drug discovery and delivery. This talk will also highlight FDA approved nanoparticles and what is necessary for the field to continue to grow.
