Definition of the noun Nanomedicine

What does Nanomedicine mean as a name of something?


  1. [medicine, uncountable] The use of nanotechnology for diagnosing, treating and preventing disease.
  2. [medicine, countable] Any medicine containing nanoparticles.


"Nanomedicine" is a technical book series by Robert Freitas. It is the first thorough analysis of possible applications of molecular nanotechnology to nanomedicine and analyzes a wide range of possible nanotechnology-based medical devices, and explains the relevant science behind their design. It is also the first thorough technical discussion of specific nanorobot subsystems, including sensors, power sources, methods for communication and navigation, and various means for manipulation and locomotion by nanorobots.


Nanomedicine is the medical application of nanotechnology. Nanomedicine ranges from the medical applications of nanomaterials, to nanoelectronic biosensors, and even possible future applications of molecular nanotechnology. Current problems for nanomedicine involve understanding the issues related to toxicity and environmental impact of nanoscale materials.
